Set Limits and Redistribute Surplus. The third Permaculture Ethic of Fair Share focusses on creating and distributing life-giving resources fairly amongst every living creature on our earth including people, animals and plants.
Look after Self, Kin and Community. There is a common misconception that Permaculture is primarily about growing food, gardening and farming; however, the People Care ethic highlights the importance of human relationships.
Rebuild Natural Capital. "The Earth is a living, breathing entity. Without ongoing care and nurturing there will be consequences too big to ignore." David Holmgren
David Holmgren has organised the diversity of permaculture thinking into 12 Design Principles.
Permaculture Ethics form the foundations of the permaculture design system and guide us to make decisions that support us to live an ethical life.
Permaculture is a word originally coined by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in the mid 1970’s to describe an “integrated, evolving system of perennial or self-perpetuating plant and animal species useful to man.”
