CREATIVITY AND THE DESERT LANDSCAPE

PERMACULTURE: VALUES-BASED DESIGN
In a nutshell, permaculture = earth care, people care, fair share.
Through the lens of ethics we are re-examining the relationships between energy, shelter, water, food, soil, climate. In the process, we also nourish relationships between people.
Our decisions are informed by systems thinking and our ethics align with the principles of human rights as extended to all living creatures.
