Permaculture is information and imagination-intensive.
Permaculture promotes both environmental and mental sustainability. "Information is the most portable and flexible investment we can make in our lives; it represents the knowledge, experience, ideas and experimentation of thousands of people before us." Mollison and Slay.
The way to be effective using permaculture is to educate and practice the theory behind it. Quality of produce over quantity is the way that the agricultural process should be viewed.
