The Permaculture Concept (1989 The word permaculture, coined by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren during the 1970s, is a portmanteau of permanent agriculture as well as permanent culture. Through a series of publications, Mollison, Holmgren and their associates documented an approach to designing human settlements, in particular the development of perennial agricultural systems that mimic the structure and interrelationship found in natural ecologies. Permaculture design principles extend from the position that "The only ethical decision is to take responsibility for our own existence and that of our children" (Mollison, 1990). While originating as an agro-ecological design theory, permaculture has developed a large international following of individuals who have received training through intensive two week long 'permaculture design courses'.

Our culture is built around disposability.

What are the Unborn Elders? Answer: The unborn elders are the children of your tribe who have not yet been born, and the grandchildren of your tribe not yet born, and so on; marching into the future. Freepathers frequently 'pray' to the unborn elders by making promises to these unborn generations, and by reaffirming their obligations to these unbron children and the impact that the actions of those of us currently alive will have on the later generations. Freepathers do no impute any mystical power to the unborn elders, and understand that the unborn elders are a mental construct used to visualize people who do not yet exist, but who- when they do exist- will have to live with the consequences of the actions of those who do currently exist. Prayer to the Unborn Elders is a method reminding us of our obligation to future generations.
