Centered around production and usefulness, permaculture is an approach to gardening that serves to sustain both the plants and their caregivers. Coined by two Australians, David Holmgren and Bill Mollison, this system focuses on observing nature and working with it to create diverse and resilient ecosystems.
At the foundation of this approach are 12 principles, each of which has been broken down in this infographic by the folks at seefit.com. While it might not be feasible to uphold all 12 principles, we can all strive to incorporate a few of them in our lives and our gardens to promote a healthier world!
