“How can we maximize hammock time?” – Bill Mullison, author of Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual

Permaculture affects every part of your life, from how you design your room, to how you design your life. It encompasses how people are able to get along and make living decisions that make sense for the long term. This interview with Stephen Brooks, director of the Punta Mona center for sustainable living and education, offers some background and concise explanation of what is permaculture.

The full 7-part documentary, which offers examples of permaculture projects in the vibrant country of Costa Rica, can be seen here:

In the following video, Stephen Brooks gives the TEDxSanMigueldeAllende Talk, “The Pursuit of Sustainable Dreams: Permacuture & Quality of Life.” Hear Stephen’s inspiring words and examples on how we can live in harmony with the nature that surrounds us.

Stephen Brooks will be offering an Intro to Permaculture workshop at Envision transformational festival February 27-March 3 in Costa Rica.

  • All you need to do is to decide on what degree of these principles you want to incorporate into your garden design.
    Nitrogen equates to the hot things such as manures or road kill and the carbon equates to the dry wood based matter
    such as dry grass clippings, dry wood chips,
    paper, cardboard, or dry tree mulch. It is the harmonious
    integration of landscape and people – providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material
    and non-material needs in a sustainable way.
