Permaculture: A Designers' Manual
This is the bible of permaculture, not a how-to-do-it pamphlet.
Bill Mollison coined the term “permaculture” (permanent agriculture) in the late 1970′s and has written two best selling books describing basic permaculture philosophy and practice. Mollison – the world’s leading expert on the subject – has taught and consulted internationally. Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of economical agriculturally productive ecosystems that have dirversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.
While permaculture focuses on agricultural systems, it also establishes the importance of integration between landscape and people. Mollison believes we must take responsibility for our lives and determine for ourselves how we are to use the resources nature has provided.
“This is the bible of permaculture, not a how-to-do-it pamphlet. Students of design and sustainable agriculture are at a real disadvantage if they have not encountered this book and gained nourishment from Mollison’s mental cornucopia.” -Jack Kittredge, The Natural Farmer
