The herb garden was created by the internationally renowned agricultural rebel, Sepp Holzer from the Salzburger Lungau, whose System of Permaculture use the simple formula: "Ask the nature, ask your land, your water, your animals if they under your control have a sense of well-being." Steirerhof hostess Gunda Unterweger has brought to this project, which for her is of heartfelt concern, beneficial knowledge and her personal style.
Holzer's Permaculture is a natural form of agriculture, which is built on a work with the cycles and interactions in nature. A business in harmony with nature is not only environmentally correct, it may be economically very successful.
