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. 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.
