We live in a very turbulent world today, it's even scary sometimes. But it becomes less scary when we understand how to sustain ourselves, how to make our communities self-sufficent.

Permaculture is a philosophy, type of mindset and a way of territory design that mimics natural patterns. Through permaculture you can design water and energy systems of your land, make sure your soil is working at its maximum capacity and produces a huge number of vegetables, fruits, berries and flowers.

It's easy to do it if you live in a village, it's easy to adapt if you live in an urban flat.
