Introduction to Permaculture Design

Introduction to Permaculture Design with Geoff Lawton. Based on the Bill Mollison Permaculture Manual and the 72 hour Permaculture Design Certificate course, Geoff Lawton explains the theory and takes you through a number of Permaculture designed projects that are patterned on Nature. An ideal introduction for anyone interested in learning more about Permaculture.

Permaculture design principles seeks a close mimicry of natural ecosystems. However, it is not always so meticulously designed.

Sami Grover writes at treehugger.com. “Permaculture is usually taught as a fairly methodical design discipline. But I learned about it somewhat differently. I make no apologies here for my bias in writing about my friend Mike Feingold – teacher, gardener, and co-conspirator who has been introducing the world, and Bristol, England in particular, to permaculture, sustainability and some fantastic varieties of fruit…

“For those of a more systematic mindset, Mike’s take on permaculture may seem chaotic – but with decades of experience in sustainable farming across the globe – from Africa to India to the Middle East and Europe – he seems to have a six sense for utilizing nutrient and resource flows, and minimizing the need for inputs of human labor or fossil fuels – all of which is at the heart of permaculture.”
