Ever notice that there seems to be a plethora of permaculture principles? And that every permaculture teachers tends to use a different set?
How could this have happened? Is this a lack of consensus in the permaculture movement? Is there a definitive set of permaculture principles?
To understand these questions better, I started to collect EVERY PERMACULTURE PRINCIPLE that I’ve ever seen anywhere. I’ve created a first-draft graphic collection of all the principles that I’ve found so far, organized by originator/lineage — take a look below!
You can download a .pdf of this first draft here.
What do you think? Is this useful?
Have you encountered a principle that’s not on this map? Let everyone know in the comments below!
