New large softcover book, 264 pages. Second edition published 2006, minor cover creasing
In this new completely revised and updated edition of her highly successful book, Rosemary Morrow brings us up to date with our need to measure, monitor and reduce our ecological footprint. Permaculture is a way to repair and restore the Earth by analysis and design. Permaculture is both a philosophy and a practical approach to land use based on three tenets: care for people, care for the Earth, and redistributing everything surplus to one's needs. As such, this straightforward and simple approach to achieving self-sufficiency while nurturing and restoring the Earth can be practised by everyone.
Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is a manual of practical permaculture, a step-by-guide on how to assess and then design a permaculture garden of any size,; whether it is a small inner-city balcony, a garden in the suburbs, or a large rural property. Included are chapters on seedsaving, permaculture at work, integrated pest management, more about domestic as well as rural water usage, a non-destructive approach towards weeds and wildlife, and designing to withstand a disaster. Rob Allsop's warm and accessible illustrations support Rosemary's practical approach to permaculture
