What is Permaculture?

According to Bill Mollison, Senior Lecturer in Environmental Psychology at the University of Tasmania, permaculture is "working with, rather than against nature." It is a method of agriculture that allows plants and animals to support each other in their natural ecosystems, which requires careful planning and a strong understanding of beneficial inter-species relationships.
