Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity of stability and resilience of natural eco systems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing people with food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Without permaculture there is no possibility of a stable social order.
