This book is pretty much the bible for home permaculture and this is the second edition of the book. It covers:
- building and maintaining soil fertility and structure
- catching and conserving water in the landscape
- providing habitat for beneficial insects, birds, and animals
- growing an edible "forest" that yields seasonal fruits, nuts, and other foods
This edition also features a chapter on urban permaculture, designed especially for people in cities and suburbs who have very limited growing space. Whatever size yard or garden you have to work with, you can apply basic permaculture principles to make it more diverse, more natural and more productive. Best of all, once it's established, an ecological garden will reduce or eliminate most of the backbreaking work that's needed to maintain the typical lawn and garden.
