HEAL & Permaculture

What is PERMACULTURE?

Permaculture or permanent agriculture is “about designing sustainable human settlements through ecology and design”. It is about caring for people, caring for the earth and redistributing surplus to one’s needs.

One feature of permaculture is land zoning. HEAL is divided into five zones.

      • Zone 0 – Structures
      • Zone 1 – Vegetables and herbs
      • Zone 2 –  Small Animal Farm
      • Zone 3  – Fruit-Bearing Trees
      • Zone 4  – Timberland
      • Zone 5  –  Wildlife
