Permaculture is the study and practice of sustainable living. At its core, Permaculture is a method of living in harmony with the world around us, and creating reliable supply chains from it. Long before Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, the naturalist and academic considered the co-founders of permaculture, coined the term in the 1970s, people were living in communities guided by its principles, and adapting to a changing world as their ancestors had done for generations.
