Description

Permaculture is an approach to sustainable living that is spreading throughout the world. Using nature as a model, permaculture is primarily a design system. Its principles can enable us to provide for our needs for food, water, shelter, energy and community in ways that are healthy for both people and the environment. The Basics of Permaculture Design, first published in Australia in 1996, is an excellent introduction to the principles of permaculture, including design processes and the tools needed for developing sustainable gardens, farms, and larger communities. Packed with useful tips, clear illustrations and a wealth of experience, The Basics of Permaculture Design guides you through designs for gardens, urban and rural properties; water harvesting systems; animal systems; permaculture in small spaces like balconies and patios; and farms, schools and ecovillages. There is even a chapter about appropriate technology, covering photovoltaic; wind and hydro-power; pumping water; and cooking devices such as hayboxes and solar food dryers. This is a both a DIY guide for the enthusiast and a useful reference for permaculture designers.
