In this film David Holmgren and Su Dennett share insight into permaculture gardening practice that they’ve incorporated into the design of their home in Australia.
One of the key features of their home is passive solar design, using the natural climate of their environment to heat and cool their home without using too much additional energy.
“The biggest changes that we’re seeing in permaculture now is the focus on people and people interactions, so the social side of permaculture. For me the most important thing is the behavioral adaptations. We don’t need huge numbers of people to change the behavior to make a big impact.”
Another key element of the property is how water is used. They took advantage of natural features to maximize water retention for irrigation. Permaculture Gardening is something that changes the whole world a little at a time.
