Imagine how much more self-reliant our communities would be if 30 million acres of urban lawns were made productive again. Permaculture is a practical way to apply ecological design principles to food, housing and energy systems, making growing fruits, vegetables and livestock easier and more sustainable. This handbook is a beautifully illustrated, step-by-step guide to creating resilient, prosperous households and neighborhoods, casting garden farming as both an economic opportunity and a strategy for living well with less money. A must-read for anyone concerned about food security, resilience and a legacy of abundance rather than depletion.
