    Very interesting than a gardening book, or even an ecosystem philosophy It s a cross between a homesteader s manual, a utopian sourcebook and a garden design book rolled into one Advice on plants, trees, water catchment, heating, building strategies, neighbor relationships, bathing , animal husbandry, and .

    Quite thorough investigation into diverse peri and suburban design methods for connected sustainable systems I borrowed from the library, and will be purchasing for permanent culture development plans.

    I found this book less helpful than many others for learning about and applying permaculture principles and practices Bane is at once didactic you should appears often and oddly poetic and idealistic at times, once describing the garden as a lover that you take into your body and learn its signs of arousal, and suggesting that suburbanites and others embrace shared living, community labour and mealtimes, a farm stand in one s front yard, and that we ask the neighbors not to spray biocides on the [...]

    One of the better permaculture books

    If the major infrastructure in our country water, electricity, roads, etc ever falls apart, this is a book that you will want to have on your shelf The Permaculture Handbook is, among other things, a guide to off the grid living There is a lot of detail, and the author has obviously thought through just about every aspect of that kind of life And has lived it himself, for quite a while This book was interesting, but a little bit beyond the scope of what I was looking for The author also has the [...]

    Well, I can t say this book itself was amazing to be honest, but it WAS very well written and laid out, and really it was amazing that the title of the book so aptly describes its function So often a handbook is just a bland overview of something that you ll never really go back to because of its simplicity This is a great handbook, and doesn t just give you teaser information like so many permaculture books do The information is useful, and gives room for other opinions and knowledge on the sub [...]

    Essentially a textbook on the fundamentals of permaculture and how they can be applied to a suburban exurban landscape It s less of a how to book and of a breakdown of the big ideas of permaculture, but written in a clear, easy to follow way I d recommend putting a few basic homesteading back to the land books under your belt before diving into this one, but there s a lot of great material to help generate ideas for your garden or small farm

    I only skimmed it because I had it on loan from the library Even with a fairly brief read I found quite a few interesting ideas It has a nice balance between practical hands on advice, theory and stories which I found helpful as they provided new ways of framing problems If you were only going to have one book on permaculture this would be a reasonable choice.

    Nothing particularly wonderful about this one, though it is as good an introduction as any to permaculture Frankly, it is not a handbook, by size nor content It is really of a primer.

    Monnette
    it wasn t what I was looking for

    Steve
    Amazing and informative book Covers all the bases if you want to start a homesteading permaculture life Reads like a textbook.
