Here at Finca Montemero we like to use the principles of Permaculture as a looking glass to guide us in all aspects of our community.
We see permaculture as permanent agriculture for a permanent culture. 
Permaculture is "a sustainable design system stressing the harmonious interrelationship of humans, plants, animals and the Earth.
The core of Permaculture is design and the working relationships and connections between all things."
