Advantages Of Permaculture

Permaculture is an agriculture process that makes the farming biosphere self-sufficient in a feasible way. It draws inspiration from nature to develop coefficient agronomy depending upon the diversity of crops and the product’s sustainability.

Azhen Sanctuary encourages permaculture agriculture, thus helping people maintain their ecosystem naturally, along with zero waste. Few consider permaculture a segment of farming without soil, no tilling of the land, and producing organic food to maintain the ecosystem. 

Permaculture is not just one environment but involves creating food and building homes along with an ecosystem wherein all produce is natural.

Benefits Of Permaculture

Permaculture is a  form of agricultural practice for designing a system for feasible development. At Azhen Sanctuary, participants can learn the ethical way of permaculture by observing the work on ecosystems or with their courses.

Permaculture helps in creating possible food sources in a self-sufficient way. A few of the advantages are,

Reduction In Wastage

The waste reduction ensures that all the resources get utilized optimally. Permaculture takes into consideration the concept of waste reduction, along with benefits for the environment and people.

The waste produced will be less than traditional agricultural waste. Permaculturists never burn or deposit trash in a landfill. It saves the environment.

Prevention Of Soil Pollution

This type of agriculture is the right way to prevent the soil from getting polluted. In traditional agriculture, pesticides and fertilizers are harmful to the earth, thus affecting its fertility. Permaculture never uses toxic fertilizers or pesticides, thus protecting the soil’s quality.

Fights Air Pollution

Permaculture protects nature while making agriculture feasible. It makes use of fewer machines and does not involve the spraying of harmful chemicals into the air. Since there is less usage of transportation, greenhouse gas emissions get reduced. 

Protects Natural Resources

This type of agriculture helps achieve goals relating to preserving the feasible settlement of people. It protects natural resources and promotes the development of products that can withstand ecological challenges.

It helps fungi, plants, humans, and animals live harmoniously and rejuvenates and protects natural resources.

Promotes Organic Cultivation

In this type of agriculture, plants like perennial plants that grow and bloom in summer and spring, then die during winter and autumn, are planted. They bloom again when spring arrives. Even annual plants are grown. This type of agriculture helps in supplying food to one another. Along with that, other vegetables and fruit trees are grown.

This plantation rejuvenates the soil; hence, pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not required, thus helping organic farming sustain itself.

Health Gets A Boost

Permaculture type of agriculture boosts physical and mental health. 

Physical health improves because all the food grown is organic and has good nutrition. Also, having an atmosphere of non-polluting air and water helps greatly.

Since there is a sense of belonging, the feeling close to nature dramatically improves mental health. It improves the morale of a person.

Production Of Clean Energy 

Permaculturists produce clean and green energy using wind, solar, or hydropower energies for farming. It benefits the environment as more efficient power is generated.

Reduction In Groundwater Pollution

When soil gets polluted, it will pass down the pollution to the groundwater and spoil it. Permaculture will help solve this problem as no toxic chemicals are used for agricultural purposes. The purity of the natural groundwater gets saved.

Lower Cost Of Living

Since there will be fewer expenses in this type of agriculture, a person can sustain from land. It will indirectly stimulate the economy of farmers as they will start selling excess produce.

A person can sustain from land since there are very few expenses. It may also help stimulate local economies to a great extent. 

Helps Conserving Water

It promotes a well-organized and feasible usage of water. Even rainwater is collected and used efficiently, thus conserving water considerably.


There is no need for maintenance of a permaculture garden after planting the crops. As it replicates nature, there is no requirement for much work to be done in the plantation garden.

Permaculture increases the caring mentality of people. It raises awareness of taking care of the planet and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
