Permaculture is a visionary design methodology for creating sustainable, and thriving livelihoods, from ecological farms to urban landscapes. It is a promising path to creating sustainable communities, founded on a system of ethics emphasizing the importance of shared values among people. Permaculture ethics embrace care for the Earth, care for the people, and sharing the collective fruits of labor. As a gardening method, permaculture can also be called ‘natural farming’, as its techniques seek to emulate nature.

Sophie maintains the Permaculture Media Blog ( and Permaculture Directory (, one of the web’s most comprehensive and free resources for Permaculture educational materials and course listings.
