Description:

Permaculture is an important but often misunderstood methodof growing food and building homes in a manner that workswith nature, rather than against it, to create beautiful, healthy, anduseful gardens. Blending ecology, organic agriculture, green homedesign, appropriate technology, and biology can be confusing andoverwhelming, but The Ultimate Guide to Permaculture simplifiesthis vast field for practical application. This is a hands-on guide,taking the beginner through each step of the design process, so thatanyone can apply permaculture principles to their own life. Whilethe principles are simple, the in-depth topics cover every aspect ofpermaculture, including:- Building green homes and passive solar design - Growing edible plant communities and forest gardens - Using no-till and natural farming methods - Creating microclimates for extended growing seasons - Raising livestock with ecological foraging techniques This is a common-sense approach to sustainable living that createsa self-sufficient and low-effort home for the people that live there,whether in the city or the country. The Ultimate Guide to Permacultureisn’t a philosophy book, or a dissertation on theory. It is astepbystep, complete guide to every aspect of permaculture.
