Permaculture has developed a reputation for being a type of agriculture. This is a beautifully crafted book for moving you away from that narrow description.

Many of the principles of permaculture are covered in enough depth to encourage you to take the next step i.e. to try it for yourself. My expectations are also that you would come back to this book more than most in times of permaculture crisis in your project.

As a reader living in the UK I found Ross Mars turned many of my conventionally held views around, not least that she is writing from OZ and so north faces the sun and the prevailing climate is not damp and cold. However her clear knowledge on water management gained from dry climates should be taken into account even in UK.

The book is about the land being more than just a place to grow food. It sets food production sustainably along side shelter and your own energy production.

Very good introductory book about permaculture. Very practical as well and great drawings. If you know nothing about Permaculture and want to give it a go, I would get this book .

Fabulous book. Purchased for ongoing organic gardening project. Food for thought...

The book is concise and well laid out. It contains numerous well taken pictures and comprehensive information.

The information contained is in depth enough to provide sustained interest to more experienced gardeners but also explains things in a down to earth way ideal for beginners. This book is an inspirational text which I would highly recommend - great for reading from cover to cover but also ideal as a quick reference.

I would recommend this book to other Amazon readers with an interest in Organic Gardening.
