Abstract:

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.
