Permaculture (“permanent” + “culture”) is a sustainable design approach for our dry land community. Great Basin Permaculture aims to inspire southern Nevadans through action and education.
Permaculture is a sustainable design approach that looks to natural systems for inspiration and insight. The word permaculture is formed by combining “permanent” and “agriculture” or “culture.” This is not just for gardeners. Permaculture can be applied to home and environmental design, community building, and daily problem-solving. By employing three permaculture ethics (earth care, people care, fair share) and a series of permaculture principles, anyone can come closer to living in healthy balance with their surroundings.
