Permaculture is a concept involving environmental design, ecological design, and ecological engineering concentrated on developing sustainable, self maintained agricultural systems modeled on natural ecosystems. Maya First is very committed to this form of sustainable system.
These are the guiding principles we at Maya First consider the most important and practical:
Genuine Permaculture must:
Provide for all life systems to multiply and continue. This first principle is the most important, because without a healthy planet, the human population cannot flourish.
Provide for people to have access to resources necessary for their existence.
Healthy natural systems use energy from surplus resources to nourish each other. The human population can do the same by governing our own needs; we will set some resources aside to nurture the entire system and each subset of its essential parts.
These are the practical results of permaculture principles.
