The Permaculture Principles provide a set of universally applicable guidelines that can be used in designing sustainable systems.
These principles are inherent in any permaculture design, in any climate, and at any scale. They have been derived from the thoughtful observation of nature, and from earlier work by ecologists, landscape designers and environmental science.
In this course, permaculture expert Michael Pilarski, explores the 12 Permaculture Principles as originally developed by Bill Mollison. After sharing a little history on how the Permaculture Principles came to be and how they continue to evolve today, Michael thoughtfully explains each principle. He uses drawn diagrams and numerous examples to help explain each principle. Michael is able to draw connections beyond the natural world and show how these principles can be applied to other sectors including social and finance sectors.
Let Michael clear up the mystery of Permaculture Principles and learn how to apply sustainable design to all aspects of your life.
