The Permaculture Handbook
New Society Publishers
You survived the Apocalypse. Now own the book that will ensure you survive the eco-Apocalypse. Bloomington-based Peter Bane has created one of the most comprehensive approaches to ecological design ever wrapped into one tome.
And what a tome it is! Nearly 500 pages, filled with photos and illustrations, The Permaculture Handbook is, literally, the one book you'll need for the desert island you might find yourself stranded on. It encompasses the essential "R"s - resilience, recovery and restoration - rendered in Bane's accessible, straightforward prose.
In its entirety, this book is the answer to those who think we can't solve our enormous problems. In fact we can, by going small and getting smart, one aspect of our lives at a time.
