Product description

Review

For most people, taking the permaculture design course is a major life event. It opens the door on a new way of looking at the world, a new way of being in the world. It affects you on so many levels that, however well you took notes, inevitably some of what you learnt passes you by. That s why Aranya wrote this book: so that people could go away from the design courses he teaches and have a reference to the design methods he s taught them. In effect it s a toolbox of permaculture design methods. So this book provides two useful functions. It s a useful primer to prepare you for the major life event that is a permaculture design course, giving you many insights into applying the design process. And if you ve already done the course, it will consolidate and reinforce the many design skills you ve learned, enabling you to put permaculture into practice on the ground. --Patrick Whitefield is an author, teacher and permaculture consultant.

The best designed detailed permaculture book I've got - I particularly enjoy the physical design and layout and I am starting to understand why things I've done before have not always worked (particularly around mapping!). The fact it is portable is so important to me as the time that I get to read books is normally when I'm travelling. Great it's not repeating much of the information covered in other core texts too. --Lusi Alderslowe, apprentice teacher and diploma tutor

I really enjoyed the read and know the advice will help me to clarify ideas and communicate designs as I put the designs online. Love the advice on slowing down, I've classically rushed a few times and the results both led to learning and act as reminders! --Nick Waitz, teacher

About the Author

Aranya has been experimenting with permaculture since his design course epiphany in 1996. In the years that followed he designed a collection of gardens, along with a few other non-land based designs, writing them all up to gain his Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design 2003. Since that time Aranya has followed a teaching pathway that now involves delivering, on average, ten two-week design courses a year. Aranya is a long-term barefooter, certain that this helps to make him more aware of nature, stay grounded and walk lightly on the Earth.
