The new completely revised and updated
edition of Rosemary's highly successful book.
Permaculture is a way to repair and restore the Earth by analysis and design and can be practised by everyone. In this fully revised and expanded edition, Rosemary Morrow brings us up to date with our need to measure, monitor and reduce our ecological footprint. Permaculture is both a philosophy and a practical approach to land use based on three tenets: care for people, care for the Earth, and redistributing everything surplus to one's needs.
Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is a manual of practical permaculture, a step–by–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. Included are extra chapters on seedsaving, permaculture at work, integrated pest management, more about domestic as well as rural water usage, a non–destructive approach towards weeds and wildlife, and designing to withstand a disaster.
Rob Allsop's simple and clear illustrations continue to support Rosemary's writing with their warmth and accessibility.
