Earth User'S Guide To Permaculture (eBook)
Sobre o livro
A simple guide for living a more sustainable lifestyle, Earth User's Guide to Permaculture illustrates how to assess and design a permaculture garden of any size, whether you live in a small city apartment; a house with a garden; on acreage in the country; or anything between or beyond! The principle for permaculture is simple: provide back to the earth what we take from it to create a sustainable environment. The three principle aims are: Care of people; Care of the earth; and Reduce consumption and distribute surplus. This completely revised and updated edition of Rosemary Morrow's highly successful Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is a straight-forward manual of practical permaculture, emphasising design science. Included in this new edition are chapters on seed-saving, 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. Chapter 19: Permaculture at the office, shop and factory, demonstrates how permaculture goes beyond the garden to how we live our lives at work, and how and what we procure to meet our needs and desires. Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is suitable for beginners as well as experienced permaculture practitioners looking for new ideas for moving towards greater self-reliance and sustainable living.
