Permaculture is an approach to sustainable living that is spreading throughout the world. Working entirely in harmony with nature, The Permaculture Garden shows you how to turn a bare plot into a beautiful and productive garden. Learn how to plan your garden for easy access and minimum labour; save time and effort digging and weeding; recycle materials to save money; plan crop successions for year-round harvests; save energy and harvest water; and garden without chemicals by building up your soil and planting in beneficial communities. Full of practical ideas for structures, children's areas and garden designs, this perennial classic, first published in 1994, is guaranteed to inspire, inform and entertain.
