What is Permaculture?

David Holmgren, an Australian ecologist, coined this word in the mid 1970’s. Dr. Bill Mollison, an

environmental psychology professor, popularized the use of this word, a contraction of "permanent agriculture"

or "permanent culture." Permaculturalists design ecological human habitats and food production systems.

Permaculture is a land use and community building movement, which strives for the harmonious integration of

dwellings, microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, and water into communities.

Thank you for joining the Permaculture movement as a participant.

Sharing Abundance

Dr. Bill Roley is the director of the non-profit Permaculture Institute of Southern California. He is an applied ecologist,

environmental instructor and consultant. He designs strategies to improve sustainable resources for homes, organizations,

governments and business. He formerly taught at Soka University.

    The event at the PV Unitarian Chruch garden was wonderful. Every time Bill Roley speaks he always does a great job of answering questions about gardening subjects. They showed a wonderful video about the garden. The garden had a bumper crop of tomatoes last year and they planted seeds for winter vegetables on Sunday. A little late but I am sure with the full sun that they will have a great crop again. One of the topics that interested everyone was about rotating crops so that the same thing is not grown in the same place again to allow the soil to replace the nutriants that were used this time. People were surprised that they needed to pull out the seasonal crops when was time to plant the next season's crops to make room for starting the new season crops at the right time. This is where food preservatio or sharing comes into play. Just so you know March is the best time to start your spring garden and your summer vegetables.
