Permaculture was originally a word made up of the two words ‘permanent’ and ‘agriculture’ but has more recently been defined as how we set up a sustainable and regenerative ‘permanent culture’.
There are three basic ethical tenets for this systems thinking model:
- Care for the planet.
- Care for people.
- Fair share.
Originally developed by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in Australia by observing Aboriginal living practices, the movement has been steadily growing since the 1970's. Every year more and more people all around the world are inspired to get involved and create positive change for their home or local communities.
Although we are calling our project "Permaculture Pinup", much like the inclusion of burlesque imagery, we include education that is similar or part of permaculture. It's not only about "farming". Food design is typically very important within permaculture action groups but so is eco-harmonious or holistic living which falls under the ethics of permaculture above.
