This book is about design. It is a practical book dealing with the elements of design which create a sustainable system. Energy benefits are discussed relating to both domestic and broad acre environments.
Permaculture Two is about design, not gardening or livestock per se but as elements in a system intended to serve man, and the ends of good ecology.
"Good teachers have nothing to give but enthusiasm to learn; they cannot with the best will in the world, give their students knowledge. Thus it is 'how' to design, rather than designing your site, which I am attempting here". — Bill Mollison, co-originator of Permaculture
Bill Mollison (1928 – 2016) was an Australian researcher, author, scientist, biologist and teacher. With David Holmgren, he co-developed Permaculture, an integrated system of ecological and environmental design, which they together envisioned as a perennial and sustainable form of agriculture. Bill Mollison is the author of numerous books on this subject including Permaculture: A Designer's Manual, Introduction to Permaculture, Introducción a la Permacultura, Permaculture Two, and The Permaculture Book of Ferment and Human Nutrition.
