We - as a Nature Concept School - want to empower and protect Mother Earth in many ways. Perma Culture is one important option - a permanent culture being useful, eco sustainable and beneficial for the Earth and the human beings. According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture)
“Permaculture is a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering and environmental design which develops sustainable architecture and self-maintained agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.. The core tenets of permaculture are
The central concept of perma culture is maximizing useful connections between components and synergy of the final design. The focus of perma culture… is… on the relationships created among elements by the way they are placed together; the whole becoming greater than the sum of its parts. Perma culture design therefore seeks to minimize waste, human labour, and energy input by building systems with maximal benefits between design elements to achieve a high level of synergy. Perma culture designs evolve over time by taking into account these relationships and elements and can become extremely complex systems that produce a high density of food and materials with minimal input.”
Seed pelleting, ploughing, water harvesting, useful climbing plants, poly culture, mulching, soil rehabilitation and tree establishment in deserts are some instruments of perma culture. In May 2012 we arranged Contour Bonding for the total area as an important preparation for planting forest trees (https://vimeo.com/63959828 - in German language).
