Beneficial Relationships

Permaculture is all about setting up beneficial relationships, and one of the most important relationships is that between the people who produce the food and the people that eat it. The present food system operates on a very large scale and works in the interest of corporate profit, not of the producers or the consumers of food. Direct marketing links between producers and consumers can benefit both parties, and reduce the ecological costs of distributing food.
