I would say that permaculture is:
'Creating maturing ecosystems with people in them'
Ecosystems follow certain principles during maturation. You can find a
condensed outline of them at
http://www.etn.lu.se/~folke_g/recirk/Eng/ecodev.htm To my understanding, most
permaculture practice works in the same direction. The resulting systems are
more 'nature-alike' and less vulnrable than common systems. The practice can
be utilised not only in gardening, but also in the creation of social systems
and urban planning.
