What is permaculture?

Permaculture is a creative design process based on whole-systems thinking. It integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – imitating the no waste, closed loop systems seen in diverse natural systems. 

The only limit is the imagination of the designer.
— Bill Mollison
