Permaculture is about creating sustainable human habitats. It is about taking the energy from the land and encouraging it to cycle back into the land, to reuse it as many times as possible before letting it go (out to the sea of entropy, where we can't use it any more) so for example, a piece of land receives sun wind and rain. if we catch those... and use them judiciously, we can make our garden grow, and feed animals who will poop and return that to the land, and pretty soon we have better soil, better food, some protection, and eventually something to build with.
