Permaculture and traditional practices of Indigenous Peoples.

Posted by Alejandro Bustamante Hernandez over 10 years ago

This project is dedicated to demonstrate the different techniques of sustainability and to rescue the forms of tradicion of our indigenous peoples, (agriculture, livestock, infrastructure) etc.

 

The terrible poverty of the peoples, can only disappear if they manage to revive their local skills. Mahatma Gandi

Mexico and Mesoamerica are lands where complex civilizations have emerged over time, so they have developed many sustainable traditional practices, which serve as examples and inspiration in Permaculture.

 In Mexico there is still a vivid memory of a society based on agricultural self-sufficiency, as it was 30 years ago  the reality for most Mexicans. Therefore Permaculture is made in Mexico within a social context, cultural and economic very different compared to the so-called first world countries where the concept originated.

Prehispanic elements as Chinampas-intensive system of food production in mini artificial islands, which support the population of Tenochtitlan (Aztecs ) or Mexican backyard of mixed forest production. Mexico provides the corn, tomatoes, chocolate, pumpkin, amaranth, among many other things to the basket of food that sustains humanity in the present.
