Permaculture, Organics & Gardening

Permaculture or Permanent Agriculture is becoming more embedded in sustainable practices globally and here in NZ. Created by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, in the mid 1970’s.

Bill Mollison says, "Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems."

And David Holmgrem states that Permaculture involves "Consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy for provision of local needs." & "He sees permaculture as the use of systems thinking and design principles that provide the organising framework for implementing the above vision."

So if you want to build bio-harmonic housing, grow healthy food, live attuned to the land in an organic and sustainable way, permaculture, gives you the basic blue-print, tools and know how to empower your dream and manifest it.

The Soil & Health Association of New Zealand Inc was founded in 1941. The founding committee were concerned at the poor state of national nutrition due to the low priority given to sustainability, organic farming and growing practices that were happening even in those times.

ORGANICNZ is an excellent magazine, with superb articles on all aspects of soils, composting, mulching, growing, grafting, pruning, germinating seedlings, harvesting, extraction, drying, storage as well as animal farming practices.

The oldest magazine of its kind in NZ.
