What Is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a system of agricultural design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. It is the inspiration for the name Perma-Earth – read more about us here.
The term “permaculture” was coined by Bill Mollison in the 1970’s. Mollison created the term when trying to describe the fact that any permanent human settlement relies on a sustainable environmental system for long-term survival.– “PERMACULTURE: A Designer’s Manual” by Bill Mollison
What Is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative agriculture is a set of holistic land management practices and grazing strategies that seek to restore and enhance the natural resources that are used, rather than deplete them. Regenerative agriculture looks holistically at the agro-ecosystem to build soil health, increase clean and safe water runoff, improve biodiversity and ecosystem resiliency, and increase carbon draw-down. We have seen firsthand the way this approach can restore diverse grasslands, eliminate the need for synthetic fertilizers and chemical herbicides, and improve the nutritional value of meat – all while helping rural economies to thrive. – Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed
