What is Permaculture?

"Permaculture is based upon planting species that work well together in given environments. The gardens are designed to be people-friendly places that pull folks of all ages and backgrounds together to work with each other for a common purpose.” - Dr. Laurie Weinstein, Chair of The Jane Goodall Center for Environmental Excellence.
