Permaculture: The Way Forward in Sustainable Regeneration

•, By Noha
 The year 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the Aquarius Festival that permanently changed the small town of Nimbin from a dying Banana and Dairy town, into a town surrounded by intentional communities, eclectic and industrious activists and cultural creatives. It is timely then that we see the launch of the Levity Foundation, a collaboration of bright minds and caring hearts set to take Nimbin and the surrounding area into the next era of sustainability and regeneration.

That era is growing from the roots of Permaculture, a discipline begun in the 1970′s from two founding pioneers in Australia, Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. Both saw permaculture as a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted & thoughtless labour; of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single-product system.
