Product Description


In his inimitable maverick fashion, Graham Burnett has jumbled together the pragmatism of Permaculture with the DIY ethos of punk, and come up with an essential and practical guidebook for anyone even remotely interested in the true nature of cultural (r)evolution. So, if you're looking to 'get a life', this would be as good a start as any - now's the time. --Penny Rimbaud, Performer, philosopher, writer, and founder of the band/collective, Crass

Graham Burnett has released a great book combining veganism and permaculture. This book is a really comprehensive introduction to both topics interspersed with a great range of vegan recipes. It s almost three books in one, but in a good way. I am not a vegan and after a 30 second browse of the book I bought a copy because it covers such a great range of learning, tips and some great recipes all geared towards how to embed permaculture and a vegan diet into your life. The whole book is based around zones starting with Zone 00 which looks at Personal Health and Effectiveness through to Zone 5 Walking on the Wild Side. 'The Vegan Book of Permaculture' is great introduction to Permaculture. It covers a load of the basics, it contains some really nice illustrations and a great further reading section, for those wanting to learn more. Graham isn t one to preach about the veganism and this book does not do this. It is much more about giving people the ideas and techniques to really embed permaculture into their lives. The book does contain over 100 vegan recipes and I would challenge the most carnivorous among you to not find a recipe you wouldn t like to try in person. Personally I will be trying loads of them out, and while I am not vegan I am trying to integrate more vegan food into my diet. Agedashi Tofu with Black Kale anyone? --Michael Thomas, Transition Network

This is book is about practical, ethical, and compassion approaches to life. After reading it, I realised there is so much that I can do right now. This really is an inspirational gift to humanity. Graham s book can liberate you. It can shake you up, wake you up, and raise your consciousness. It is a handful of beautifully crafted common sense. Some of us try hard to do the best for ourselves, our families, our animals, and our planet. Sometimes we struggle, sometimes we need help. Here is help. After reading this book I didn t just think, yes I can, I said, yes I will. --Benjamin Zephaniah, poet, writer, lyricist, musician and trouble maker

This book explains permaculture in simple easy to understand terms. It includes information on how to design your own permaculture garden and grow your own food. There are a long list of suggested plants to grow and an astounding number of recipes. Please don't make the mistake of thinking this is only for vegans. It isn't. It is for everyone. Set to become a classic, this book is a great investment and is highly recommended.

I was thrilled to hear that a book on vegan permaculture was being written. I have so many vegan friends who won't consider reading a book on permaculture because they think it has to involve keeping livestock to supply the manure and other essential functions in a system, and they don't want to have to read about something that runs so contrary to their ethics and principles. This book provides the perfect solution for anyone who would benefit from an introductory text on permaculture and wants to learn to tread more lightly on the planet without relying on the use of domesticated animals.

This book was started when the author, Graham Burnett, was asked by Maddy Harland of Permanent Publications to write a vegan recipe book, but somewhere along the line the project grew into something a little bigger. It still has plenty of recipes, but now they tend to form the final section of the chapters. There is also a comprehensive index to the recipes, reflecting their importance in the book.

The layout of the book is fairly typical for a basic permaculture text, with an introductory chapter followed by chapters pertaining to the various permaculture zones, starting with a surprisingly in-depth chapter on Personal Health and Effectiveness to represent Zone 00, and working right through the other zones and finally back (or is it round?) to the final chapter, Coming Full Circle – The Power of Community. I should also mention the rather delightful line drawings which reflect the author's gentle and unassuming outlook on life.

I've read a lot of vegan literature, and was vegan myself for several years before my son was born and my hormones and blood sugars went haywire and I felt I had to resort to eating animal products so I could keep my blood sugars stable.

This is a beautiful book about permaculture with many practical tips. I missed some more explanations about how to run a permaculture farm or garden without animals. What can you do to serve the functions that animals serve in farms that do keep animals and at some point bring them to the slaughter house. This is why I bought the book because it is called Vegan Permaculture. I found just half a page relating to the vegan aspect of permaculture, saying we do not want animals to suffer. So in that aspect I am disappointed. Nevertheless it is a great book about permaculture and vegan cooking, but not about vegan permaculture the way I expected it.
