Synopses & Reviews
Written to introduce readers to Permaculture concepts and design strategies.
Topics include: energy efficient site analysis, planning and design methods, house placement, design for temperate, dry-land and tropical regions, urban Permaculture garden layouts, land access and community funding systems, chicken and pig forage systems, orchards and home wood lots, how to influence micro-climate and a large section on selected plant species with climatic tolerances, heights and uses.
Abundantly illustrated with detailed diagrams and line drawings throughout. Includes a listing of useful Permaculture plants with descriptions and uses, and a further species list in useful categories.
The book is set out as a step-by-step introduction to Permaculture with detailed instructions. Using simple language it describes the range of Permaculture for general consumption. Very little content of Mollison's other books are found within Introduction to Permaculture.
"Excellent introduction to the science of Permaculture. This book has lots of ideas for you to start your own design to the permaculture world." Garden Community (www.gardencom.com)
The book that started it all, this revised edition of a classic weaves together philosophies of land-use, hands-on techniques of soil, agricultural, and livestock management, earth-friendly irrigation, and more, to form a very clear and inspiring picture of how sustainable agriculture not only can but must be made to work. Simple line illustrations throughout.
