What’s the difference between Organic Farming and Permaculture?
We like things that are quick and easy to understand so we've stolen this great explanation from permaculturevisions.com to share with you.
Basically, Permaculture uses organic gardening and farming practices but it goes beyond these practices and integrates the garden and home to create a lifestyle that impacts less on the environment.
Organic Farming promotes the use of natural fertilisers, making use of the natural carbon cycle so that waste from plants becomes the food (fertiliser) of another. In organic farming however, as with ALL farming, minerals are being lost from the farm every time a truck load of produce is carted to market.
Permaculture goes one step further. Permaculture brings production of food closer to consumers and the consumer’s wastes back into the cycle. It also reduces the energy wasted in transporting the foods by producing the foods where the people are. In permaculture the people contribute in their daily life toward the production of their food and other needs.
In essence the Permaculture approach is holistic and integral to environmental restoration and truly sustainable agriculture practices. Whereas organic certification is solely focused on reducing chemical use and residue on food by the use of regulation.
