What is permaculture?

Permaculture is a powerful theoretical method of holistic design creating a sustainable, balanced environment in alignment with nature and the foundation for a healthy community. Our vision is to create a self-sustaining center, integrating biological permaculture with water preservation, waste recycling and solar energy.

Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design that supports self-sufficiency and sustainability to the entire ecosystem. Every pattern made by a plant, animal or element is considered in a permaculture system. Just like all qualities of human nature are considered in Yoga; mental, physical, spiritual. In both these systems it is believed that holistic observation is imperial to the success and well being of the environment and the individual. When we observe an ecosystem, we discover its natural patterns and rhythms and can work with this natural system to make it whole and complete.

The Woods is a 13 area property in a mountain area of Beragala where we are planning to create an agriculture towards the introduction to permaculture.
