We live in an era in which we may lose up to 80% of the world’s genetic diversity in agriculture, a diversity it took mankind 10,000 years to create. We need this diversity to sustain our agriculture into the future. The fact is most of this diversity is not certified organic. Help us live long enough into the future when all agriculture is safe (organic) by finding varieties of plants that do well in your own garden wether they are organic or not and then learning to save the seeds. You are able to save the seeds from hybrids if you want to pay attention to at least 8 generation of offspring, or long enough to stabilize the lines. You can find free seed saving instructions here:http://www.seedsave.org

Permaculture applies patterns found in nature to the design and construction of sustainable human and natural environments. All permaculture decisions are based on three ethical principles: care of the earth, care of people and the reinvestment of surplus in the first two principles.
