8.7 Acres, One Vision
We are building a demonstration project that shows how to create truly sustainable community. Our conceptual permaculture design was co-created with our partners at Midwest Permaculture.
WHAT IS PERMACULTURE?
Permaculture is a set of principles that guide social and agricultural design in a way that utilizes the patterns and features of natural ecosystems. Care for the earth, care for the people, and fair share are the ethics in which permaculture is grounded. The goal is to create systems that are functional, sustainable, and that work with nature to become self-sufficient. The word permaculture combines the terms permanent and culture. By designing our systems to adhere to the above ethics, we move towards creating a permanent culture.
With sustainability being the foundation of our work, we are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. In society today, we are restricted by building methods that generate 40% of the waste and pollution streams from the entirety of "civilized" cultures. Our objective in building Earthcamp Village is to see how close we can get to creating structures that last a very long time, but create and generate very little waste or CO2.
