Three Main Components of Permaculture:

CARE FOR PEOPLE:  This means mind, body, and spirit.  Humans are complex beings that require far more than the few things mentioned on the base level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.  It’s true, we do need food, water, shelter, and clean air.  However, we also need acceptance, value, safety, self-actualization, and esteem.  These higher level needs are all part of caring for ourselves and those around us.

CARE FOR THE PLANET:  We are all living together on the same giant rock.  Let’s do our part in not only caring for and maintaining it, but also leaving it as good or better than we found it.  Permaculture utilizes age-old practices and traditions of managing the earth, but also integrates the latest scientific research to better restore the soils and land on which we live.

FAIR SHARE OF RETURN:  That’s right – payment. Sometimes payment is in the form of the green stuff (dollar bills) and sometimes it’s in the form of the other green stuff (veggies).  However, at the end of the day, what is important is that we have return on our labor.  No one wants to invest time, energy, and money into something that has zero return.  Permaculture ninjas are experts at eliminating unnecessary parts of the system and maximizing return on investment.
