Welcome to Plant Essentials!
Natural ecosystems are self-regulating and can flourish indefinitely if they are allowed to stay in balance. Permaculture seeks to mimic natural ecosystems by creating designs based on a philosophy of working with nature. Since its inception in the seventies, permaculture has become a global movement. The principles work on any scale and can be adapted to any climate, landscape and cultural context. They can be applied equally to whole villages, a home garden or a balcony vegetable garden. This Guide provides a broad overview of the subject, enabling you to introduce permaculture concepts without delay. The immediate benefits will include better yields, more efficient use of available resources, minimisation of waste, significant labour savings and the priceless pleasure of a natural, beautiful garden, attractive to wildlife as well as humans.
