Permaculture Ethics Explained

Updated: Mar 7, 2023

Permaculture ethics are the guiding principles for sustainable design and decision-making in permaculture. They serve as a roadmap for achieving a harmonious relationship between humans and the natural environment.

  1. Earth Care: This principle requires individuals to be mindful of their impact on the environment and to take steps to reduce or eliminate that impact wherever possible. This includes practices such as reducing waste, using renewable resources, and preserving ecosystems.

  2. People Care: This principle requires individuals to prioritize the well-being of other people and to work towards equitable distribution of resources. This includes practices such as supporting local communities, reducing poverty, and promoting fair trade.

  3. Fair Share: This principle requires individuals to recognize that resources are finite and to distribute them in a way that is sustainable and equitable. This includes practices such as reducing consumption, sharing resources, and promoting self-sufficiency.

These principles should be applied in all aspects of life, from personal consumption habits to larger systems and infrastructure. Adherence to permaculture ethics is essential for achieving a sustainable future for all.

Help Us Grow!

At Rusty Top Farms, we're dedicated to supporting our veterans and helping them experience the healing power of gardening. We're currently raising funds to build garden crates for veterans who may not have access to a garden or who may need extra support to get started.

Each garden crate costs us $300 to build, and we rely on donations from our community to make this project possible. If you'd like to support our mission and help us build garden crates for veterans, please consider making a donation through our fiscal sponsor at Every donation counts and makes a difference in the lives of our veterans.

Thank you for your support and let's continue to work together to support our veterans and build a more resilient community!
