I feel this article is the most holistic description of Permaculture and how it affects climate change that i can offer. With the climate talks media being virtually obsolete i offer this article after much contemplation and work. If you enjoy please share.


The model to regenerate land and ecosystems is quite a simple pattern on the environmental level but when the human complexities of the triple bottom line come in, the scenario unfurls with a greater intricacy. In other words the social and economic systems that reinforce things like swales and compost tea are the great frontier of permaculture in this moment. Regardless I will take a holistic and systematic look at development below using several graphics and text. An understanding of the big picture allows us to later delve into details which is why I commissioned the following graphic below that explains “Why Permaculture“.

The graphic above illustrates the integrated approach of permaculture and the need to examine the overlapping factors of the triple bottom line. By seeing these interconnections and applying this pattern the webs of nature that bring resilience are woven. From there we must look below at another graphic to completely understand the pathways to abundance. This simple bubble diagram stays at the pattern level and gives header points for further mind mapping if one chooses. With that, we must remember that to simply take care of environmental factors is folly for it is the creative human interaction that truly is permaculture. As humanity is discovering rapidly for the good, systems are quite dynamic and non linear and it is through this understanding that the patterns reveal the abundant roadmap ahead. Systems must be orientated into holism, interconnections crystalized through pattern recognition, and challenges seen as opportunities.
