Permaculture, Poop and Farts Permaculture allows nature to do its thing. The gardens are lush and beautiful. While the birds chirp high in the trees, soft aromas mix in the air as a butterflies pollinate the flowers. Animals and plants coexist in natural harmony while humans organize and revel in their creation. It is a...
6 Problems with Monoculture Farming Permaculture gardening promotes biodiversity. It seeks to maximize the number of productive species of plant within a plot, not only to offer the gardener a diverse and vibrant number of crops to harvest for the kitchen, but also so that the ecosystem is itself is strong, with different plants...
Permaculture means a completely new approach in a direct relation to agricultural goods production that is in equilibrium with our ecological system and its natural cycle. It is our answer to the sustainable agricultural productivity that is constantly provisioned, supervised and maintained. Making all things natural benefits us as well as our planet and it is directly related to our future. Permaculture is the philosophy or teaming up with nature rather than working against it. It is the ability to understand all living things on our planet in all their functions. People need to learn to care for this Earth before they start polluting it and permaculture is the next step in achieving that goal.
Since the number of situations, in which we more destroy than help our nature, is increasing, we need to come up with a solution that will decrease those numbers. Earth care means that all people should put their minds to it and come up with a plan or a method that will stop harming this world and yet continue providing us with all our necessities. We are nothing more but just a part of this great planet so, that means that we need to start acting like that. As soon as we start respecting nature around us, the sooner we can start working on a better tomorrow.
The first step towards that is making people care about their environment. That means that we all need to work together in order to prosper and keep our planet and natural habitat healthy. The second step would be putting some limitations to our consumption. Uncontrollable consumption and pollution are the two main reasons why our entire ecosystem is in danger and why we have extinct and endangered species. Natural resources should be shared with a great care because of a simple reason. If we spend all of our resources, there will be nothing left for us or our future generations and this is not an encouraging thought at all.
We already learned that permaculture could be beneficial to us as well to our Mother Earth. We can save money and natural resources, turn our waste into organic materials and manure, make less waste, therefore, stop polluting our air, soil and water, stop using pesticides to natural fertilizers because they are much healthier for us and our animals. One of the really great benefits from permaculture is zoning. This means knowing which produce ripens first. This allows better usage of crops and cutting down the food waste that hyperproduction is dealing with all the time.
Green living means using all natural resources for fertilizing your soil and, watering. This results in healthier fruits and vegetables as well as animals and humans, who consume them. The concept of green living implicates that you do not need any artificial material to grow anything from the soil. Permaculture is caring about this world.
