Yields, income and produce
"You can't work on an empty stomach"

We all require energy to sustain ourselves and to generate an income. Permaculture encourages us to develop short-term, medium-term and long-term yields. This can take team work and planning but we can still start right away. Notice how the vegetable in the icon picture has a bight taken out of it.
