Permaculture ‒ What is that?

Permaculture is a planned system of sustainable life environment ‒ habitat ‒ by imitating universal laws and principles functioning in nature. It is a form of establishing balanced environments and relations between ETHICS, ECOLOGY AND ECONOMY. The term PERMACULTURE is a portmanteau word combining parts of the words PERMANENT AGRICULTURE. Permaculture does not mean only sustainable agriculture, but also permanent culture since cultures cannot survive without balanced and healthy agriculture and fair use of land. Social aspect is one of the foundations of the permanent stable system.

Permaculture deals with plants, animals, constructions and infrastructure (water, energy, roads), but it is not that these things are important individually, it is their interconnection that counts and the way we place them in the landscape. 

Permaculture is a way of thinking and living hand in hand with nature. It can be described as an ethical system of food production, use of land and residence construction. Permaculture includes ecology, landscape, organic farming, architecture and agroforestry. The individual permaculture elements are not the most important, the most important is the interaction of these elements that bring to synergy effect. Permaculture is based on keen and shrewd observations of nature and natural systems leading to recognition of universal laws and principles which we incorporate in our environment.

Permaculture means self-sufficiency, independence, freedom. It is a personal relationship with nature. It is an important way of survival based on a principle: by minimal effort and imitating the cycles of nature to bigger crops. Permaculture advocates that a 4-member family can survive on 60 square meters of cultivated land. Have you been thinking about your own garden already?

The Villa Ruševec is situated in a very quiet, full-of-hills location of Pohorje. We recommend it to all who are seeking to be in touch with wonderful nature.


The surrounding of the Villa Ruševec is wonderful and the Villa is clean and nice. We were very satisfied with the additional offers. A ski centre is only 2 km away and after skiing the Ruševec is a perfect peaceful shelter.


Thank you for a wonderful family relaxation in your apartment. I recommend the Villa Ruševec to all. My children enjoyed it very much. Ruško the Black Grouse rules.
