Permaculture – A system of analysis which allows us to understand the natural flows of energy resources which dictate all ecological systems and agricultural systems in particular, permaculture is a way of designing gardens that work with nature to increase efficiency, productivity and soil fertility over time, all while minimizing inputs and human effort.

Resilient Nac Permaculture is a group of folks who are interested in exploring these concepts and sharing them with a larger audience through workshops and community gardening. Send Resilient Nac Permaculture an email here to get involved. And you can visit their blog here.
