Permaculture One presents unique strategies for creating a food-producing system specifically suited to your needs, whether you garden in your backyard or engage in full-scale farming. By carefully designing a system around functional relationships between plant and animal species you can create a stable ‘cultivated ecology’ suited to local conditions. The book provides a catalog of 130 trees and plants useful to a permaculture system.

The authors have based permaculture on the underlying philosophy ‘of working with, rather than against nature’ of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions rather than treating any area as a single product system.

Focusing throughout the book on providing for human needs while maintaining a deep respect for the finite resources of the earth. Mollison and Holmgren propose an alternative to the resource-hungry methods of commercial agriculture. ‘Permaculture One’ gives you the tools to begin at your own doorstep.
