Permaculture Design Certificate
Permaculture is a design philosophy that draws inspiration from natural systems to create productive and harmonious systems. It originated in the 1970s by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren as a sustainable approach to agriculture. Permaculture has since expanded to include social aspects, business strategies, and systems thinking. It focuses on understanding and utilizing energy flows, such as sunlight and rain, to create resilient designs. The key ethics of permaculture are care for the Earth, care for people, and reinvesting surplus to support these ethics. Permaculture designs emphasize the interconnection and multiple benefits of each element, mimicking the complexity and stability of natural ecosystems.
