Permaculture is a way to reconnect with the natural patterns of Life and apply them in daily existence.Michelle Huet
Permaculture is a holistic design system for creating sustainable human settlements and food production systems. It is a movement concerned with sustainable, environmentally friendly land use and the building of stable communities, through the harmonious relationship between people, plants, animals and the Earth.
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against, nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions, rather than asking only one yield of them; and allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions.
Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people in a sustainable way. It is a system of assembling conceptual, material, and strategic components in a pattern which functions to benefit life in all its forms.
Implacable and uncompromising opposition to further disturbance of any remaining natural forests. Vigorous rehabilitation of degraded and damaged natural systems; Establishment of plant systems for our own use on the least amount of land we can use for our existence; and Establishment of plant and animal refuges for rare or threatened species.
The term "permaculture" was coined by Bill Mollison and gifted to the college of graduates of the Permaculture Design Certificate.
In this course we’ll be exploring a myriad of strategies and techniques that deepen the human connection to the natural world. Designing and implementing resilient food, fuel, shelter and community systems is paramount to the permaculture designer. We’ll cover the tools necessary to investigate and narrate one’s landscape from the point of view of a designer and co-creator of the managed farm or homestead with the goal of creating interdependent human/animal/plant relationships.

The Hideghegyi Menedék (Hideghegy Shelter) project was started in 2017 on a three hectare land not far from lake Balaton. The land lies on a once cultivated hill, it consists of a south facing slope and a plateau, and gives space to pasture land and smaller vegetable plots. The area has a rich and diverse ecology.

Currently a couple lives there permanently and other members of the community join them regularly for shorter-longer periods. They are working on the establishment of a self-sustaining permaculture farm, which will also give place to eco-tourism and environmental education programs incorporating arts and the methods of ecopsychology. The farm will also provide a transitional home for those who need a bridge to arrive to a new paradigm and to lead an ecologically sustainable lifestyle.
