Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against
nature; of protracted & thoughtful observation rather than
protracted & thoughtless labour; & of looking at plants
& animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area
as a single-product system.
NC State offers a free permaculture course online complete with
filmed lectures and slides. There are 29, 90 minute lectures the
include topics such as ethics and principles, soil ecology,
vermicomposting and green architecture.
