This is strictly an introductory book. It covers a lot of concepts, but nothing is given much detail. I much prefer a book with more narrow parameters which can offer more substance. This book does have some very nice photographs; sadly some lack any descriptors.

About This Item
Permaculture is an important but often misunderstood method of growing food and building homes in a manner that works with nature, rather than against it, to create beautiful, healthy, and useful gardens. Blending ecology, organic agriculture, green home design, appropriate technology, and biology can be confusing and overwhelming, but The Ultimate Guide to Natural Farming and Sustainable Living simplifies this vast field for practical application. This is a hands-on guide, taking the beginner through each step of the design process, so that anyone can apply permaculture principles to his or her life. While the principles are simple, the in-depth topics cover every aspect of permaculture, 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 creates a self-sufficient and low-effort home for the people that live there, whether in the city or the country. The Ultimate Guide to Natural Farming and Sustainable Living isn’t a philosophy book or a dissertation on theory. It is a step-by-step, complete guide to every aspect of permaculture.
