Three Reasons Why Permaculture Is Decentralized

Martin and Gabrielle from Qu├ębec found us for today’s permaculture themed visit.

Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles that aims to create sustainable and self-sufficient communities. Here are three reasons why permaculture is decentralized:

  1. Local Adaptation: Permaculture emphasizes adapting to the local environment, climate, and culture. Therefore, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution that can be implemented from a central authority. Rather, each community or farm must adapt permaculture principles to their specific needs and local conditions.
  2. Community Empowerment: Permaculture places a strong emphasis on community involvement and decision-making. It encourages people to work together and share resources to create sustainable systems. Decentralization allows communities to take ownership of their permaculture projects and be self-reliant.
  3. Diversity: Permaculture is based on the idea that diversity promotes resilience. By having multiple interconnected systems, permaculture farms and communities can better adapt to changing conditions. Decentralization allows for a variety of approaches and solutions to be developed, rather than relying on a single centralized approach.
We discussed how empowering Permaculture design can be since it runs on local regenerative biodiversity.
