A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture

By Toby Hemenway

The first edition of Gaias Garden sparked the imagination of Americas home gardeners, introducing permacultures central message: Working with Nature, not against her, results in more beautiful, abundant, and forgiving gardens.

This extensively revised and expanded second edition broadens the reach and depth of the permaculture approach for urban and suburban growers. Many people mistakenly think that ecological gardening -- which involves growing a wide range of edible and other useful plants -- can take place only on a large, multiacre scale.

As Hemenway demonstrates, it's fun and easy to create a backyard ecosystem by assembling communities of plants that can work cooperatively and perform a variety of functions, including:

  • Building and maintaining soil fertility and structure
  • Catching and conserving water in the landscape
  • Providing habitat for beneficial insects, birds, and animals
  • Growing an edible forest that yields seasonal fruits, nuts, and other foods

This revised and updated edition also features a new chapter on urban permaculture, designed especially for people in cities and suburbs who have limited growing space.

The quintessential permaculture tome

If you're interested in permaculture, this is THE book. I've referred to my copy more times than I can even count when I've embarked on projects in my garden.

Lovely book

Full of beautiful color photos and information about the philosophy of Permaculture and down to earth instructions for those interested in turning Permaculture into a reality in the garden. Would be a great present for some lucky person!
