Description - Earth User's Guide to Permaculture by Rosemary Morrow

The principle for permaculture is simple: provide back to the earth what we take from it to create a sustainable environment. The three principle aims are: Care for people; care for the earth; and redistribute everything surplus to one's needs.

This completely revised and updated edition of Rosemary Morrow's highly successful Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is a straight-forward manual of practical permaculture. Fundamentally, permaculture is design science and in this new edition design is emphasized. This book will be most beneficial if you apply it to the space where you live and work. The same principles apply for becoming more sustainable and living lightly whether you live in a small city apartment with a balcony, in a house with a garden in the suburbs, or on acreage in the country.

Included in this new edition are chapters on seed-saving, permaculture at work, integrated pest management, information about domestic as well as rural water usage, a non-destructive approach towards dealing with weeds and wildlife, and designing to withstand a disaster.

Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is suitable for beginners as well as experienced permaculture practitioners looking for new ideas in moving towards greater self-reliance and sustainable living.

Author Biography - Rosemary Morrow

Rosemary Morrow has qualifications pertaining to agriculture, horticulture, rural sociology and adult education. She is a highly regarded permaculture teacher and has been practising and teaching worldwide (most notably in Australia) for 20 years. Rosemary is known and revered world-wide for her pragmatic and effective approach to creating permaculture systems across an incredibly broad range of environments, successfully implementing community-scale permaculture systems in such diverse bioshperes as, Somalia, Thailand, the Middle East Australia and northern Europe, to name but a few. Her knowledge on how to create abundance, food security and successful sustainable farming models, no matter what the country, is perhaps unparallelled in permaculture education today.
