A permaculture handbook

If you have questions about permaculture or just want to find out more, then this is the book. As well as answering any questions you may have, the earth care manual is about applying the principles, it is a book of solutions for our present situation, to be acted upon rather than dealing with how these situations have occured. For those who attend Patricks permaculture design course the book is the text to accompany each lesson.
