At MiKu Valley we define permaculture technologies as any technique or practise that is used to accomplish the permaculture design goal. With this page we introduce or update you to a very few broad impact projects that make use of traditional indigenous and emerging or re-emerging methods to accomplish numerous goals in specific physical locations. That said, Permaculture tecnologies are applicable in most if not all human endeavours.
Like all technologies they have or will evolve - often due to location, available natural and human resources, local knowledge and capacities including climatic and weather conditions over time. Most projects, regardless of scale, have numerous embedded technologies designed to accomplish the steps to achieve the project goals. These examples, like with permaculture in general, the designer(s) looks to achieve multiple relationships and synergies which utilize the available (or create new processes to introduce new) resources in multiple ways for multiple benefits as they cascade or "move" throughout the design framework.
Again, some of these projects or proponents would not in themselves claim them to be "permaculture designs" per se, but we can clearly see many parallels between the methods and the goals. Regardless of what terms we use for the specific technolgies and practises the proof is in the pudding, so to speak. And, while each individual project listed may offer the prospect for a relatively narrow outcome it is also likely that these various project strategies could be blended and merged to potentialy achieve broader results and greater resiliency over the long term. In each example the proponents are clearly trying to obtain overall processes that are regenerative in the holistic sense. Meanwhile, they seek to utilize available resources without creating residual wastes for any other parts in the environmental context that the project is embedded within. In these cases the "environment" is the often the broadest characterization of human and natural systems in and around the project. In broadest terms permaculture design primarily considers WATER, ACCESS and STRUCTURES within the ethics and principles of the discipline.
