For my FYS 121 Living The Good Life class with Professor Rosemary Logan, I decided to do a research paper on permaculture and more sustainable living for my final project. The research paper discusses how it came about, what it is, and how it works. Permaculture was created by Bill Mollison in the 1970’s, an Australian ecologists and professor at the University of Tasmania. Permaculture is a philosophy of working together rather than against nature. It consists of protracted and thoughtful observations rather than thoughtless labor. Lastly, Permaculture also helps provide food for families by planting.
