Permaculture is a design method – which helps us see things and act from a comprehensive sustainable viewpoint. While sustainable farming or agriculture forms the core activity among the practitioners, permaculture design covers various aspects including architecture, town planning and even planning out someone’s career.!
Following the guidelines set by Bill Mollison, we derive inspiration from:
- the patterns in nature
- the knowledge from our heritage
- the use of appropriate technology for the most long term benefit.
At Urban Hijau we are in the transition to become a fully sustainable Permaculture model site.
We do this by growing wholesome organic food, have various events for young and old to increase awareness and share practical knowledge, and we have also set up a nursery to spread as much plants and trees as possible.
