Definition of Permaculture Design:
Permaculture design is a system of assembling conceptual, material, and strategic components in a pattern which functions to benefit life in all its forms. It seeks to provide a sustainable and secure place for living things on this earth.
Every component of a design should function in many ways. Every essential function should be supported by many components.
Principle of Self-Regulation:
The purpose of a functional and self-regulating design is to place elements or components in such a way that each serves the needs, and accepts the products, of other elements.
