The food crisis is on its way to becoming one of the main problems, the prevalence of which is increasing all over the world. The food problem deepened by wrong and inefficient agricultural practices; It brings with it new production models and searches such as “fine agriculture”, “sustainable agriculture”, “permanent agriculture”. Permaculture, on the other hand, brings these models together and stands out as one of the most effective agricultural models. The purpose of permaculture, which is based on the continuation of agricultural production in smaller and self-sufficient areas by creating a sustainable ecosystem, to create easy-to-maintain, stable and self-sufficient production areas by bringing plants, animals and people together in nature.

Near East University Faculty of Agriculture, on the one hand, carries out scientific research on permaculture practices that will shape the agricultural production of the future, while continuing to work on informing agricultural producers. The “Urban Agricultural Practices from a Permaculture Perspective” seminar, held online by the Landscape Architecture Department of the Graduate Education Institute in collaboration with E-Study Box, was met with great interest.
