Permaculture : principles & pathways beyond sustainability by David Holmgren( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike previous books by David Holmgren which have highlighted practical case studies in permaculture design, this book brings into sharper focus the powerful and still evolving Permaculture concept he pioneered with Bill Mollison in the 1970s. It draws together and integrates 25 years of thinking and teaching to show a whole new way of understanding and action behind a simple set of design principles. This book is relevant to every aspect of how we reorganise our lives, communities and landscapes to creatively adapt to ecological realities which shape human destiny. For anyone seriously interested in understanding the foundations for sustainable design and culture, this book is essential reading. It contributes to a growing synthesis of design with economics, society, and landscape ecology, and compels all serious advocates of sustainability to reconsider the central organizing power of the permaculture concept.--From publisher description

The permaculture handbook by Peter Bane( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The urban landscape has swallowed vast swaths of prime farmland across North America. Imagine how much more self-reliant our communities would be if thirty million acres of lawns were made productive again. Permaculture is a practical way to apply ecological design principles to food, housing, and energy systems, making growing fruits, vegetables, and livestock easier and more sustainable. The Permaculture Handbook is a step-by-step, beautifully illustrated guide to creating resilient and prosperous households and neighborhoods, complemented by extensive case studies of three successful farmsteads and market gardens. This comprehensive manual casts garden farming as both an economic opportunity and a strategy for living well with less money. It shows how, by mimicking the intelligence of nature and applying appropriate technologies such as solar and environmental design, permaculture can:*Create an abundance of fresh, nourishing local produce *Reduce dependence on expensive, polluting fossil fuels*Drought-proof our cities and countryside*Convert waste into wealthPermaculture is about working with the earth and with each other to repair the damage of industrial overreach and to enrich the living world that sustains us. The Permaculture Handbook is the definitive practical North American guide to this revolutionary practice, and is a must-read for anyone concerned about creating food security, resilience, and a legacy of abundance rather than depletion. Peter Bane is a permaculture teacher and site designer who has published and edited Permaculture Activist magazine for over twenty years. He helped create Earthaven Ecovillage in North Carolina, and is now pioneering suburban farming in Bloomington, Indiana
