Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture

Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-scale Permaculture by Toby Hemenway, Chelsea Green Publishing.

Although I’d attended a short course on permaculture when I first read this book, and was familiar with the basic concepts, I found Gaia’s Garden very exciting, full of new ideas, practical knowhow and fascinating facts. The section on grey water recycling is wonderful, with a detailed blueprint that I intend to follow. Though much of the book is not pertinent to my situation, being aimed at the permaculturist in North America, both rural and urban, it brings together all the important ideas in permaculture and presents them in a very accessible, systematic and logical way. And not least, it’s a thing of beauty,  a sheer delight to read and look at.
