Permaculture principals were operate by:
Conventional farming is characterised by monocropping, technologies, and synthetic fertiliser. It is resource intensive in terms of capital, land, water, and fossil fuel use.
Conventional farming threatens future food production by reducing biodiversity, and contributing to environmental degradation and climate change which lower yields.
Permaculture farming, is a contraction of permanent agriculture design system for the application of agroecology. It was developed in Australia in the 1970s based on agroecology and indigenous farming systems. In practice, permaculture farms are organic, low-input, and biodiverse, and use techniques like intercropping trees, planting perennials, water harvesting, resource recycling., aquaponics, hydroponics, sheet mulching, worm castings, composting, rain water harvesting, chicken tractors, Hugelkkultur berms, and Keyline design to name a few. By using these techniques we manage our gardens holistically, with no need for dangerous chemicals fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides.
