Inspired by her own training in permaculture, Linda Woodrow has devised a totally integrated organic system of gardening that combines science with common sense. In The Permaculture Home Garden she draws us into a warmly welcoming household where everyone shares the planting, helps to tend the hens, and relaxes after a satisfying day's work. Step-by-step instructions and helpful diagrams make it easy to plan and plant a garden to suit your taste and space – a garden that not only looks wonderful but also yields bountiful fruit, herbs and vegetables.

Perfect for the serious Permaculturalist


Informative and great for those staring off (wanting to know history behind this gardening philosophy). Great ideas and methods shared. However, more diagrams and/or photos would have been very beneficial, as they would add interest and help clarify some methods explained. Overall, good but a little 'dry' in places



Essential for home garden permaculture


Originally I loaned this from the library to get some ideas about chook tractors, but found it to be a gold mine for a systematic permaculture garden that could be adapted to our residential back yard. After re-reading major parts of the book several times, we took the plunge and now successfully run six small 2m diameter garden beds that provide a steady supply of lovely veg, and now we put our chooks to work too for a month on each bed! The result is no more gluts, much reduced direct seed planting failures, higher productivity per square metre, great use of our compost, big savings by growing our own mulch, less gardening effort expended in the long run, shorter in-ground production times, and much happier chooks. The book had to go back to the library, so we didn't hesitate to buy it as an ongoing reference. Written in an easy to read style by someone who is actually doing permaculture successfully, The Permaculture Home Garden is good for small and large scale gardens and is so cram packed with ideas, good advice, warnings about where things can go wrong, and written with good humour, this reference warrants re-reading several times. Start saving your two litre milk cartons while you wait for your copy of this book to arrive.



This book doesn't disappoint.


If you are ready to be inspired to begin permaculture, this is the book for you. You can start adopting the principles from the very first chapter. Linda Woodrow makes it easy, fun and exciting.
