Permaculture Ethics

We hope you are enjoying our blog journey so far. As each blog goes up, I aim to create a story along the way that will help all of us learn more about Permaculture and give you an insight into what we are doing here in El Tambo, Nicaragua. Todays topic is ethics. Don't worry if you ate all the ice cream and denied it, today I'm talking about permaculture ethics.

Ethics are the moral principals that govern a person’s or group’s behavior. Permaculture is centered around three main ethics. So this can be said, these are the three main behaviors of permaculture.

Care for the Earth

We depend on the earth to live. Without us, the earth would live, with us, the earth pays the price. Caring for the earth includes letting mother nature do her thing, and by replacing that which is taken (by us). Caring for all plants, animals, land, water, air, and living organisms.

Care of People

Taking a responsible action towards caring for the greater community. As Health Cote said “caring for people means meeting people's needs so that people's lives can be sustained and have a good quality of life, but without damaging the earth.” 

Fair Share Return of surplus to Earth and people /

Fair Share means consuming only what you need and sharing the surplus with other people or returning it to the earth. Earths resources are limited and therefore they need to be shared amongst many people. Permaculture looks at sharing the resources fairly amongst the people, land and plants whilst taking into consideration the needs of water, housing and food for the future generations. 

Those are the three main ethics of permaculture in a nut shell. Obviously this is quick overview. Keeping it short and sweet hoping you stay tuned with us on our journey at MESA Sostenible. Together we will see the farm grow from a vacant field into a flourishing permaculture farm stay and cooking experience here in beautiful Costa Esmeralda Coast of Nicaragua.

Permaculture. Life starts with a name.

Hi, its Cade here from MESA Sostenible, permaculture farm stay and cooking experience.. Welcome to our Blog! This is my first Blog. I hope to make this fun, interesting and educational. I get a kick out of writing so here it goes. 

This is the beginning of the journey for MESA Sostenible, Ron, myself and our growing team here in El Tambo, Nicaragua.  So, first things first, what does MESA Sostenible mean? Well, in Spanish it means "Sustainable Table." Your probably asking why did they call it Sustainable Table? 

"Since the beginning of time, people have come together around a table to celebrate the bounty the earth has offered them. The table being the center of unity for families, communities and religion. Its not about the physical table itself but the unity in people it creates. Mesa Sostenible focuses on bringing sustainability to the table in the moment of unity."

So this is how the name MESA Sostenible was born. You have read, witnessed and hopefully liked my first short blog. Share it online so your friends will know too.

I look forward to this journey together as we plant, build and grow here in El Tambo, Nicaragua. 

Until next time,

Adios Amigos
