Permaculture : A Designer's Manual - Bill Mollison
Permaculture : A Designer's Manual
by Bill Mollison
Published by Tagari Publications - Hardcover - 21,5cm x 28cm
This is the definitive Permaculture design manual in print since 1988. It is the textbook and curriculum for the 72-hour Certificate course in Permaculture Design.
Written for teachers, students and designers, it follows on and greatly enlarges on the initial introductory texts, Permaculture One (1978) and Permaculture Two (1979) both of which are still in demand.
Very little of the material found in this book is reproduced from the former texts. It covers design methodologies and strategies for both urban and rural applications, describing property design and natural farming techniques.
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.
