Permaculture can be summed up in three simple concepts that provide a model for a better world:
1. Earth Care - take care of the Earth, and use resources wisely.
2. People Care - take care of your self, family, and community.
3. Fair Share - taking only what you need, and contributing where you can.
The best thing is that the concepts of permaculture can be practiced right in your own backyard right now.
