Completely revised and updated, this manual of practical permaculture is a step-by-step guide on how to assess and then design a permaculture garden of any size, whether it is a small inner-city balcony, a garden in the suburbs, or a large rural property. It includes chapters on aquaculture, food forests, conservation, seedsaving, integrated pest management, water usage, dealing with weeds and wildlife, living in communities and designing to withstand disasters.
This classic manual brings us up-to-date with our needs to measure, monitor, and reduce our ecological footprint. It's a great resource book, full of useful ideas in the Australian context. Written by Rosemary Morrow, with delightful sketch illustrations by Rob Allsop, it's interesting to read from cover to cover, but also fun and enlightening just to dip into at random.
