Visit Website
An educational website that offers an outline of the permaculture concept using the ethics, design principles and permaculture flower.

The original concepts outlined were developed by permaculture co-originator David Holmgren and were first published in the Essence of Permaculture in 2002, the precursor to his full length book Permaculture: Principles & Pathways Beyond Sustainability published later that same year. The icons used in the book, and featured in this website, were a collaborative design effort by David and graphic artist Richard Telford.

A collection of mages used to illustrate examples of the principles have featured in previous Permaculture Calendars, with contributors the world over. Songs for each of the principles have been made available thanks to Charlie McGee - from the album Permaculture: A Rhymer's Manual.
