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 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.Read more ›

I found this book really helpful. I really liked the way the author uses own experience, makes it easy to follow, especially as he uses his own back garden as example. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Diane Rainbow-Towers
