The team at Watervale Hotel are passionate about fresh local food and Clare Valley produce.
Our Promise – To follow Permaculture Principles
Our total business follows Permaculture ethical principles, not just the Farm. We are guided by Jared Murray of ‘Green Living Permaculture’ along this path. The ethics at the core of Permaculture practice are equally applicable at the Watervale Hotel; that is everything we do:
- Must be healthy for the planet,
- take care of people,
- and lead to an equitable distribution of wealth and well-being.
Permaculture businesses are a sustainable, self-sufficient eco-system – economic and ecological.
The following chart are a framework that list the 12 principles of permaculture design.
The principles are a useful check-list to assess and re-assess your own farming practices, but not a roadmap for execution of permaculture farming. That is because every farm is different – soils, climate, commercial or personal objectives.
