They appear in the ancient legends, tales, folklore and customs of the Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Brits, Celts and American Indians. They even feature in three of William Shakespeare’s plays, Hamlet, Othello and Twelfth Night. Some folklore associated with willows is fascinating – my two favourites are are that it is bad luck to tell a secret while standing under a willow, as the wind that blows through the leaves will reveal the secret to everyone, and that striking an animal or a child with a willow twig will stunt their growth!

They did have some strange ideas way back in Medieval Europe!

They safeguard and enrich soil ecosystems, enable plants to form cooperative combinations, make use of layers above and below the soil, and they create benign microclimates which soften winds and recycle the rain.

Masanobu Fukuoka

Masanobu Fukuoka Masanobu Fukuoka, en 2002 Masanobu Fukuoka (福岡 正信, Fukuoka Masanobu?) (né le et mort le ) est un agriculteur japonais, connu pour son engagement en faveur de l'agriculture naturelle. Permaculture. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.


Jardin permaculturel à Sheffield, Royaume-Uni La permaculture est une méthode systémique et globale qui vise à concevoir des systèmes (par exemple des habitats humains et des systèmes agricoles mais cela peut être appliqué à n'importe quel système) en s'inspirant de l'écologie naturelle (biomimétisme) et de la tradition[réf. nécessaire]. Elle n'est pas une méthode figée mais un « mode d'action » qui devra prendre en considération la bio-diversité de chaque écosystème.

Elle ambitionne une production agricole durable, très économe en énergie (autant en ce qui concerne le carburant que le travail manuel et mécanique) et respectueuse des êtres vivants et de leurs relations réciproques, tout en laissant à la nature « sauvage » le plus de place possible[1],[2]. Cette méthode a été créée dans les années 1970 par les Australiens Bill Mollison et David Holmgren. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code]

Permaculture - PermaWiki. Permaculture is a design system which aims to create sustainable human habitats by following nature's patterns.

Permaculture - PermaWiki

The word 'permaculture', coined by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren during the 1970s, is derived as a contraction of permanent agriculture, or permanent culture. The idea of permaculture is considered among the most significant innovations developed by Australians in the century since Australian federation [1]. However like "nature", the permaculture concept evolves with time making its definition difficult.

For example, consider the words of Bill Mollison, I guess I would know more about permaculture than most people, and I can't define it. ... Nevertheless, today permaculture can best be described as an ethical design system applicable to food production and land use, as well as community building. Origins Edit.
