By Peter Bane This comprehensive manual casts garden farming as both an economic opportunity and a strategy for living well with less money. It shows how by mimicking the intelligence of nature and applying appropriate technologies such as solar and environmental design. Permaculture can create an abundance of fresh, nourishing local produce, reduce dependence on expensive, polluting fossil fuels, drought-proof our cities and countryside and, convert waste into wealth.
Permaculture is about working with the earth and with each other to repair the damage of industrial overreach and to enrich the living world that sustains us. The Permaculture Handbook is the definitive, practical North American guide to this revolutionary practice, and is a must-read for anyone concerned about creating food security, resilience and a legacy of abundance rather than depletion. 2.5 x 21.3 x 27.9 cm, 480 pages.
