Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people — providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.

– Geoff Lawton

At SEEDS we are interested in truly integrated food systems and that are fundamentally regenerative, adaptable, and diverse. Our current industrial agricultural system couldn’t be farther from the sustainable models we need for the long-term viability of humans and the planet at large. We believe the practices of permaculture are essential for building the sustainable future we wish to pass down to the next generations. However, the problems being birthed out of our current agricultural paradigm are seemingly innumerable and almost every aspect of our current system is based on false assumptions, flat out lies, and short-term profits over long-term well-being.

We must come together and change course for the sake of all life on this planet, now, and all life on this planet to come. Luckily, the technologies and design systems already exist that can solve the problems that our modern agriculture paradigm presents. The vision and practices of permaculture are essential for building the more beautiful world that SEEDS holds as possible. Below is a library of resource to get you up to speed on permaculture or to support you to dive even deeper into specific design strategies.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1548868790900{margin-top: 40px !important;margin-bottom: 1px !important;border-top-width: 40px !important;border-bottom-width: 1px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 1px !important;border-radius: 2px !important;}”]
