One of the 8 criteria that we have put forward on the website is the presence of a vegetable garden within the ethik hotels. This must also be used for the preparation of the meals offered. It is while selecting the responsible hotels that could be included on our website that we discovered permaculture.
What is permaculture?
It is true that we had already heard this name but without really digging the subject, we confess it to you. And there, the term coming back several times, it seemed important to us to dig a little the subject. The idea was at least to know what we are talking about!
Obviously our first action was to look at Wikipedia which tells us that "permaculture is a systemic and global concept that aims to create ecosystems. The inspiration comes from nature and its functioning (which is also called biomimicry or ecomimicry) and from tradition. Permaculture takes into consideration the biodiversity of each system."
And for dummies, what does it look like?
Well... To tell the truth, we were not much more advanced! But not discouraged for all that. So we continued to search and find this great infographic made by Lesecolohumanistes. This infographic is accompanied by a clear and concise article that allows in a simple way to explain the main lines of the concept, which was largely sufficient for our need. We invite you to discover it.
Here are some tips if you want to get started?
If you wish to go further, there are a multitude of sites and/or books. They will guide you to start your own garden.
In addition, many Ethik Hotels practice permaculture because in a sustainable development approach and therefore ecotourism. If you go to one of them, we are sure that they will be happy we are sure they will be happy to tell you more about it.
In any case, what you have to remember is that it is a way to use the earth's resources of the earth to feed ourselves but respecting it!
And you, were you already knowledgeable about permaculture or did this article also help you go to sleep less stupid? ?
