New softcover book, 218 pages. Second edition, published 2011

Permaculture is about designing sustainable human settlements. It is a philosophy and approach to land use which weaves together microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management and human needs into intricately connected, productive communities. Introduction to Permaculture was written to introduce readers to Permaculture concepts and design strategies.

Topics include:

  • Energy efficient site analysis, planning and design methods

  • House placement and design for temperate, dry-land and tropical regions

  • Urban Permaculture: garden layouts, land access and community funding systems

  • Using fences, trellis, greenhouse & shadehouse to best effect

  • Chicken and pig forage systems; tree crops & pasture integration for stock

  • Orchards and home wood lots for temperate, arid and tropical climates

  • Permaculture gardens: energy-saving designs and techniques

  • How to influence micro-climate around the house and garden

  • Large section on selected plant species lists, with climate 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 Bill Mollison's other books is found within Introduction to Permaculture.
