Permaculture’s principles are simple: take care of the earth, and the earth will take care of you. Ecological landscape designer Jessi Bloom and permaculture expert Dave Boehnlein provide all the tools you need for this holistic approach to living that leads to healthy food, a healthy home, and renewable resources.

The book covers the basic principles of permaculture, showing the entire design process, and offers detailed information on the plants, water, waste, energy, shelter, food, animals, and structures that make up the garden. Filled with real-life examples from all over the world, this invaluable resource will help you turn your home garden into a sustainable ecosystem.
