It’s typical to think that climate can’t be controlled, but global warming proves otherwise. Our activities contribute to climate change whether we’re aware of it or not. Microclimates are a good way to start thinking about human-controlled climate. Permaculture uses many simple methods to manipulate temperature and humidity in microclimates.
Zones and sectors are a permaculture method for incorporating natural energy flows like wind, water, sun, and fire into the garden design. Learn about different ways to create microclimates, and how to invite, block, or store wind, water, sun, and fire.
