Ethics & Principles
1. Observe and interact
2. Catch and Store Energy
3. Obtain a Yield
4. Apply self-regulation and accept feedback
5. Use & value renewable resources & services
6. Produce no waste
7. Design from pattern to details
8. Integrate rather than Segregate
9. Use Small and Slow Solutions
10. Use and Value Diversity
11. Use Edges and Value the Marginal
12. Creatively use & respond to Change
By taking the time to engage with nature we can design solutions that suit our particular situation.
By developing systems that collect resources when they are abundant, we can use them in times of need.
Ensure that you are getting truly useful rewards as part of the work that you are doing.
We need to discourage inappropriate activity to ensure that systems can continue to function well.
Make the best use of nature’s abundance to reduce our consumptive behaviour and dependence on non-renewable resources.
By valuing and making use of all the resources that are available to us, nothing goes to waste.
By stepping back, we can observe patterns in nature and society. These can form the backbone of our designs, with the details filled in as we go.
By putting the right things in the right place, relationships develop between them and they support each other.
Small and slow systems are easier to maintain than big ones, making better use of local resources and produce more sustainable outcomes.
Diversity reduces vulnerability to a variety of threats and takes advantage of the unique nature of the environment in which it resides.
The interface between things is where the most interesting events take place. These are often the most valuable, diverse and productive elements in the system.
We can have a positive impact on inevitable change by carefully observing, and then intervening at the right time.

In Permaculture Design, each element has multiple function - and each function is supported by more than one element.
