What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a design system based on ethics and principles which can be used to establish, design, manage and improve all efforts made by individuals, households and communities towards a sustainable future.

How does it work? Basically it reintegrates and re-establishes natural processes, largely through nature preservation, urban forestry and watershed management. This can restore the balance lost to global warming, as shown in this 3-minute video from WeForest.
