Organic gardening vs. Permaculture?
The primary difference is that organic gardening is still agriculture and that means you are still depleating the land, fighting weeds, killing pests, and all sorts of other nasty anti-life business.

In permaculture, we basically assume that you are going organic. Permaculture just makes that a non-issue - pest and weed control is not needed.
Very few pest/weed problems if you slash and burn a few acres of rain forest every year and grow your food there.

Maybe that's a good way to discern between organic and permaculture. In permaculture, you don't have to control pests/weeds.
