Permaculture is a methodology allowing the optimization of agroecology using a systemic approach and an extensive and shared knowledge database.
At operational level Permaculture perform a fusion of technical and biological functions into eco-friendly cycles in order to reduce energy consumption and capitalize on autonomous and resilient processes for food and habitat production.
It leverage synergies and system dynamism to settle the regeneration processes necessary to sustain productive ecosystems.
It encompass ethic in its methodology of development to help human integration through diversity, integration, complexity and autonomy.
At physical level it applies both in rural and urban areas
It is an open and integrative platform welcoming any ancient or new sustainable technique, concept or design.
Permaculture gives a complete guideline for the farm setup; site choice, global design, development roadmap and ecosystem monitoring.
It increase biodiversity, yield and reduce human labor and external input
Permaculture is information intensive and has developed a world wide knowledge database (via internet) of fauna and flora, functions, interactions and processes, adapted to different contexts.
The objective of a Permaculture design is to transform the resources into a capital (permanence) and reduce the need for operational expenditures (entropic loss).
Permaculture encompasses social and economic aspects giving a large part to collaboration, resources sharing and local market integration.
