Permaculture: the link between sustainable living and environmental conservation – Part 4

The goal of permaculture science has always involved global application. The applicability of this science, and the ability of anyone anywhere to truly bring permaculture design principles home, is some of its greatest success factors. In bringing everything we’ve learnt about permaculture in this series together, let us consider how you can apply permaculture principles, whether you live in the suburbs or rural surrounds.

Our modern day water and energy consumption levels are proving to be unsustainable. To satisfy the world’s growing food demand, high yielding agricultural practices, with intensive water and energy consumption, are the norm. These practices are major causes of environmental pollution and degradation. Our environment and own health are protesting against our modern, chemical based ways, but thankfully we have the basis of twelve permaculture principles to guide us to a new way of living!
