Permaculture Business Plans

Why do you need a business plan?

The single biggest determining factor for the long term viability, growth, success and positive impact of a business and its owner is having a business plan.

A well-developed business plan defines the what, when, who, where, why and how in every aspect of your business. It contains critical financial data, it refines your niche target market, it spells out how your customers will receive your product or service – consistently every time. 

You business plan will form the basis of your company culture. It identifies the potential risks and threats to your business success, enabling you to prepare and protect yourself and your business. It spells out your statutory obligations to tax and regulatory organisations, and how you manage these relationships. 

As you develop and update your business plan, you will identify opportunities for future growth and expansion. In short, every single business needs a business plan to survive, grow, and thrive.

Why do you need permaculture?

The movement of Permaculture began in the mid-70’s, developed by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. It quickly spread around the world as a set of principles to harness the power, beauty and perfect balance of nature for the benefit of human life and society. It centres on food production and the quality of life. It’s a way of thinking and approaching problems, and finding the answers that nature provides. It was developed by studying the ancient cultures around the world and understanding how they live in harmony with the earth. The ethics and principles are to be used in conjunction with each other, and not as stand-alone rules. 

We apply permaculture by using the PRINCIPLES that work for nature to solve the problems you face in your business. It’s a way of thinking, a way of approaching the issues. A common saying in permaculture is: “The problem IS the solution”. Take a problem, examine it, turn it around, make it work for you, not against you.

Permaculture Ethics and Principles

Permaculture begins with 3 over-arching ethics, demonstrated in the centre of the image above – people care, earth care, and fair share. The 12 principles are: (Clockwise from the top) * Observe and Interact *Catch and Store Energy *Obtain a Yield *Apply Self-Regulation and Accept Feedback *Use and Value Renewable Resources *Produce No Waste *Design from Patterns to Details *Integrate, not Segregate *Use Small and Slow Solutions *Use and Value Diversity *Use the Edge, Value the Marginal *Creatively Use and Respond to Change.

 

Permaculture will provide a truly valuable and dependable framework of attitudes and values that will surely benefit your business. By introducing these principles into your business, you will find that your business will operate in a more harmonious way. Your people will be happier, your customers will be happier, and you will be happier. Your business will be environmentally sustainable.
