In this completely revised and updated edition of her highly succeessful book, Rosemary Morrow brings us up to date with our need to measure, monitor and reduce our ecological footprint. Permaculture is both a philosophy and a practical approach to land use based on three tenets: care for people, care for the Earth, and redistributing everything surplus to one's needs. As such, this straightforward and simple approach to achieving self-sufficiency, while nurturing and resoring the Earth, can be achieved by anyone.
Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is a manual of practical permaculture, a step-by-step guide on how to assess and then design a permaculture garden of any size, whether it is a small inner-city balcony, a garden in the suburbs, or a large rural property. Included in this new edition are chapters on seedsaving, 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.
