#‎Permaculture‬ is an ethical design science. It is a system that supplies all the needs of humanity — all the basic needs and all the intricate needs — in a way that also benefits the environment. It works from the intimate small space of human habitat right up to the broad, damaged ecosystems which can be repaired with the design science system.

Art Of Erosion. Dry stone wind shields of Lanzarote vineyards, Canary Islands, Spain.
Semicircles of dry-stone walling protect the vines from the relentless wind on Lanzarote and a single vine is planted in a fairly deep depression behind each wall. The vine is never watered. With virtually no rain it catches what little rain there is, but condensation forms in these depressions overnight as the air temperature cools the heated volcanic soils and this provides most of the vine’s water requirements. It seems a desperately labour-intensive way of farming but they have done it this way for generations. Avantgardens FB

Condensation is usually the least calculated climatic effect but if designed well conden –
sation can have the most significant impact on a landscape, especially in the world’s drylands. Even in the continental drylands with extremely low humidity, a well designed forested landscape can capture the occasional moisture in the air as condensation drip, and increase the overall precipitation figures by up to 80%. Additionally, it can reduce evaporation with shade/wind buffering while increasing the soils organic matter with detritus material, and improving the water retention capability of local soils. On island drylands, condensation can increase by the maritime effect of humid air currents from the ocean. Even where there is extremely low or virtually no rainfall if condensation is harvested the increase in precipitation can be that of 1,000’s. The value of designs that collect condensation can be immeasurable and worth extending into all drylands globally to help reverse
desertification. Geoff Lawton
