Our Principals

We have adopted the Permaculture Principles:

Observe and Interact
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

Catch and store energy
“Make hay while the sun shines”

Obtain a yield
“You can’t work on an empty stomach”

Apply self regulation and accept feedback
“The sins of the fathers are visited on the children unto the seventh generation”

Use and value renewable resources & services
“Let nature take its course”

Produce no waste
“A stitch in time saves nine”

Design from patterns to details
“Can’t see the wood for the trees”

Integrate rather than segregate
“Many hands make light work”

Use small and slow solutions
“Slow and steady wins the race”

Use and value diversity
“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”

Use and value the edge and marginal
“Don’t think you are on the right track just because it is a well beaten path”

Creatively use and respond to change
“Vision is not seeing things as they are but as they will be”
