SUST 120 - Introduction to Permaculture

Permaculture is the conscious design of landscapes which mimic the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems and the relationships found in nature while yielding an abundance of food, fiber and energy for the provision of local needs.  Permaculture is the use of systems thinking and design principles to provide the organizing framework for implementing this vision.
