La permaculture can save the world? In recent decades, the major problems in agriculture and beyond have been solved thanks to new technologies. At the same time, progress has brought with it new challenges to be faced. Permaculture on the other hand proposes a return to the wisdom of the past for feed the world population e protect the environment.
Permaculture is a method for design and manage man-made landscapes so that they are able to meet the needs of the population, starting above all with food. At the same time, permaculture projects must exhibit the richness and stability of natural ecosystems.
The introduction of new technologies and GM in agriculture it would have led to unexpected negative consequences for health, such as the increase in cases of food allergy. According to Food Allergy Research & Education, the food allergy are grew by 50% from 1997 to 2011. Researchers are studying the causes of the phenomenon. Only in Europe as many as 17 million people have developed food allergies. The use of harmful chemicals in agriculture, such as Syngenta's "Atrazine", is creating problems in animals and a real chemical castration of frogs has been discovered.
According to the Australian Geoff Lawton, expert in natural agriculture and garden design, exists a solution to all these problems and it is precisely permaculture. Thanks to his own work, he taught the permaculture design to over 6000 people in 30 countries around the world.
Its permaculture techniques allow everyone to have the necessary for survival and abundant harvests in full respect of the environment. Permaculture design allows you to adapt your project to the spaces available and to your needs.
Even within small urban areas it is possible to start permaculture projects for thefood self-production. Geoff Lawton has made a series of videos available for free online to allow everyone to learn the main elements of permaculture design.
Growing naturally by maximizing crop yields without resorting to harmful pesticides and fertilizers allows you to obtain healthy food in abundance, at zero kilometers and in harmony with the ecosystem. According to Lawton, permaculture allows you to start a new life with a completely different approach to agriculture and food needs. So we can be all part of the solution and not the problem.
