Permaculture is a word coined by Dr. Bill Mollison (an Australian scientist) and David Holmgren (an Australian ecologist) in 1974; it’s a portmanteau word formed from the words PERMAnent agriCULTURE. Permaculture uses nature’s patterns to intentionally design sustainable human habitats where community development, housing, technology, energy, and food production are logically integrated in a way that is mutually beneficial for the earth and its inhabitants.

The permaculture movement is a lifestyle ethic utilized by people all around the world and it is most active in Australia, the United Kingdom, and in the United States.
