I bought the Earth Users Guide way back in 1994. It was at a time when I'd realised that there was much more to permaculture than making herb spirals and sheet mulch beds, and was desperately hungry to find out more. I'd borrowed Permaculture One and the Designers Manual from the library, but have to admit that as a newcomer didn't find them particularly approachable. Rosemary Morrow's book on the other hand was exactly what I was looking for, and I fondly remember hours spent pouring over its clearly written text, colour photos and the wealth of clear, simple yet beautiful diagrams and illustrations that made the book a visual treat. Drawing on her years of experience in Australia, Vietnam, Cambodia, India and Africa, Morrow communicated the essence of permaculture ethics, principles and design with enthusiasm, translating Holmgren and Mollison's heady but rather theoretical concepts to an accessible 'here's how to do it' approach. After giving an overview of ecological concepts such as understanding landscape, soil, water and climate, the book covered practical applications of permaculture in the home and garden as well as more broadscale areas of farming, aquacultures, orchard and forest management, finally looking at 'social permaculture' strategies such as LETS and bioregionalism. Together with Graham Bell's 'Permaculture Garden', I can honestly say this is a book that changed my life... Receiving this new edition was therefore like having a visit from an old friend, being able to spend a good few hours reminiscing and once again sharing their wisdom and inspiration. And as with meeting the best of our old mates, its great to learn that the Earth Users Guide has moved on and grown. In fact its been completely revised and updated to almost twice its original size! In particular the sections on urban permaculture and community building have been expanded, and there are new sections on 'weeds', wildlife gardening, seed saving and pest management, as well as the introduction of concepts like Ecological Footprinting that were virtually unknown in the early 1990s. And best of all, there are loads more new pictures! Morrow continues to empower with her vision that permaculture possibilities are not only open to anybody whatever their circumstances or situation, but can be fun too! Graham Burnett, Permaculture Magazine

2.0 von 5 Sternen Terrible Representation of Permaculture 8. April 2014
Von Weston Ginther - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read quite a few different permaculture books and this was, by far, the worst one. The book never establishes a solid outline or direction and is constantly jumping from one topic to the next. Instead of explaining the principles of permaculture in such a way that gives the reader the knowledge to apply what he/she has read, the author chooses to instruct the readers to perform somewhat futile tasks. For example, the author dedicates nearly an entire chapter on how to conduct a water audit for you or your family. While a water audit can sometimes be a useful tool in the "permaculture toolbelt", it should not be the focal or starting point for every property or personal situation like the author would like you to believe.

This book contains so many politically-biased, inaccurate statements it made my head want to explode. Unfortunately, it is these kinds of publications that are holding permaculture back from gaining widespread acceptance. Permaculture can dictate politics but politics should never dictate permaculture. More government regulations (carbon taxes, etc.) are the antithesis of permaculture. This book takes the ethics of permaculture and twists them to meet a certain political goal.

It is also impossible to look any particular topic up in this book since the index is less than a full page long. This book reads like a school textbook, so to have such a small index is terrible book planning.

Please, do NOT waste your money on this book!

Gaia's Garden or Sepp Holzer's Permaculture would be FAR better choices!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get it; you won't regret it 1. Oktober 2014
Von Mwilcox M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is pretty much all you need to know to joyfully and abundantly reduce your carbon footprint and increase your food security and self sufficiency. Once the initial learning curve and setup are done, it all pretty much runs itself, so your life ends up being more Earth-friendly and easier to maintain. And, by the way, this is not just about growing a garden and having chickens; it applies to literally every area of your life from building or buying a home to your work and social life and everything in between. The book can streamline your life whether you live on a commercial farm or in a tiny apartment. If you feel you never have enough money or time, this book can help you have more of both. The principles are applicable to a small family as well as an entire community (or world).
5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect for beginners 18. März 2016
Von Mystdancer77 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Everything you need to start your permaculture journey. This was the assigned textbook for a permaculture class I attended and I only wish I'd found it sooner. It was written in Australia so many references are to that zone but the information is relevant to all zones and the simple pictures drive home concepts well. If you're looking for the basics, this is a great place to begin with all of the concepts, exercises, and applicable info.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not a good introduction to permaculture practices 13. Dezember 2014
Von J. Allee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Having taken a college class in permaculture where this was a required text, I am thoroughly disappointed. Some of the information makes sense, but in general you have to live in utopia (or terraform the planet) in order for much of the information to apply. In reality, we have to work with what we have and make the most of the situations we inherit from previous landowners - and NO piece of property is going to fit the criteria given in this text for where and how to position homes, gardens, etc. Some information is just not right in reality even if on paper it is a great idea. For example, it might make sense logically to store water in a pond uphill from your home so that using gravity you can feed water to the home as needed..... in reality, anyone who has ever had a pond bank wash out in a heavy rain will tell you what a great idea it would be to have a pond uphill from your home.

I was really excited to take this course, but this book had turned me off by the middle of it - I felt myself hating having to use the book for answers and getting more and more sarcastic in my answers because of the absurdity of the rules given. Not everyone starts with a blank slate when becoming interested in permaculture - yet that is what is made it seem like you needed. Ideas on how to incorporate permaculture practices in realistic ways (baby steps) would make it easier to get people started.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Easy and Fun to use 24. Oktober 2014
Von M. Verber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Very easy to read, and easy to use. Great for providing concepts as well as exercises to put those concepts into practice. A lot of books on the same subjects contain repetitive and almost boilerplate sections that are so duplicative and somewhat ambiguous, this is much simpler and an easy way to begin to incorporate as much or as little as you can.
