Difference Between Organic Gardening and Permaculture

Difference Between Organic Gardening and Permaculture

Design Matters

The 3 things that make Permaculture different:

It has an ethical core. The test is: if it isn’t good for the earth and good for people in a fair share, then don’t use it.

Imitate Natural Systems. Permaculture uses biological resources and natural energies and observes the clever ways nature responds and adapts. Nature cycles the energy resulting in now waste. Efficiency is Natural.

Permaculture uses a set of Principles, Strategies and Techniques

Permaculture uses organic gardening practices but it goes beyond. It integrates the garden and home to create a lifestyle that impacts less on the environment.

The Permaculture garden is more than an organic garden. Although organic food production often has many innovative elements, a Permaculture designed garden joins each of the elements into functional relationships.
