La permacultura surge como una respuesta, como una propuesta positiva a la crisis energética del sistema actual y plantea soluciones prácticas para la viabilidad humana en un mundo dónde la energía fósil está en declive y el clima se alborota.

Dado que el modelo de agricultura moderna depende de los combustibles fósiles, tanto en su producción (maquinaria; herbicidas, fungicidas y pesticidas) como en su transporte, la permacultura propone desarrollar técnicas de agricultura sostenibles y locales parahacer frente al futuro.

La permacultura es el diseño de entornos humanos sostenibles. Trata de una ciencia de diseño que observa e imita el funcionamiento de los sistemas naturales para crear entornos sostenibles, capaces de satisfacer las necesidades de sus habitantes, sin explotar ni contaminar el medioambiente, y de forma perdurable a largo plazo.

Todas las personas interesadas en un futuro mejor
