Nick Ritar on practicing permaculture


Change your habits and you can start to have a way of living that is in harmony with the natural world. This is not a poor way of living, by the way. We’re talking about a very rich way of living.

Many people in the world don’t have access to clean water, those that do poo in it. Much of the world’s precious landscapes are being dug up and ruined to source phosphate and nitrogen, while those very nutrients get flushed down the porcelain throne everyday. Seems crazy doesn’t it? Nick Ritar wants Aussies to make common sense more common, learn some new habits and reconnect a broken system. His answer lies in Permaculture.
