PERMACULTURE

The Urban Homestead Project in Pasadena, California, USA since 1985.

According to the Permaculture Association in the United Kingdom, “permaculture” has the following meanings:

Permaculture combines three key aspects:

1. An ethical framework

2. Understandings of how nature works

3. A design approach

This unique combination provides an ethical framework that is used to design regenerative systems at all scales - from home and garden to community, farm and bioregions.

The word 'permaculture' comes originally from 'permanent agriculture' and 'permanent culture' - it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature.

Permanence is not about everything staying the same. It is about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture, and social justice, peace and abundance.

Permaculture may be a challenge in Hong Kong, but it is great to start learning about the essential knowledge around it so we can regain the balance for our lives and pave way for a better and healthier future.

New Age Quality Fish & Organic Farm, Yuen Long

 

The closer farms are located to where we live, the fresher and more nutritious the produce that we can buy from them. Packaging can also be reduced because of the shortened logistic distance. In Hong Kong, we can visit many local farms to learn about farming first-hand, have all kinds of educational and fun activities there and purchase delicious fresh produce there as well.
