Some permaculture principles

Permaculture principles are “thinking tools”, that when used together, allow us to creatively re-design our environment and our behaviours in a world of less energy and resources.

  • Observe and interact
  • Capture and store energy
  • Produce a yield
  • Apply self-regulation and accept feedback
  • Use and develop renewable resources and services
  • Not to produce waste
  • Design from pattern to details
  • Integrate rather than segregate
  • Use small and slow solutions
  • Use and enhance biodiversity
  • Use borders and enhance the marginal
  • Use and respond creatively to changes


These are principles outlined by D. Holmgren which since has seen another few sets appear from other permaculturists.
