Organic & permaculture
Organic farming is an integrated farming system that offers tasty and authentic food while respecting the natural cycles of plants and animals (no "chemical" products).
Permaculture is at the same time an ethics, a science and a tool to design systems (any type of systems, including agricultural and social systems).
The idea is to use the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems (biomimicry), to do with nature and not against it. To replace work by intelligence. To aim for efficiency, sustainability and resilience. Permaculture originally referred to "permanent agriculture", and has been created in the 1970's by the Australians Bill Mollison et David Holmgren.
