If you are into soil, you'll love it.

I have a thing for soil so this was a great listen and l like hearing the story of people who are also on a journey of learning how to regenerate the soil. This book is a testament to how amazing and profitable regenerative permaculture is, as well as how much consumers seek nutrient dense foods and transparent means of production. I learned a lot.

Surprise

The sublime success of my permaculture garden rests on this book. I realized I made so many wrong steps the previous years and luckily, thanks to this manual, I could fix them all, each of the contents was discussed distinctively and satisfactorily. The most helpful part for me was ‘Building a terrace system’; I’ve been looking for a good guide on this argument for so long, and finally I found one. I was also able to study food crops very well with the help of this book. I really like also the Bonus Chapters. Thanks!!

Exactly 25 fake reviews - Audible has to intervene

Fake reviews on Audible generally seem to be in blocks of 25 or 50 and posted within a few days of each other. All 25 are 5 star and generally vague cut and paste efforts from other generic reviews.
The narrator mispronounces so many words and generally sounds like he has little comprehension of what he's saying yet no one felt compelled to mention this? ...well because they're not real. Audible needs to crack down on self publishing authors like this who engage in this sort of activity; it overshadows those who take the time to write genuine and thoughtful reviews.

Fantastic resource

I was able to benefit from using animals in my permaculture garden, I used to focus on plants alone before, but after studying this book, I learnt how to introduce them in a healthy way into my garden. The steps in the book were very effective and I was able to monitor both the plants and the animals. These are just some of the many benefits I got form going through this manual; I highlighted these few because they contributed more to the success of my garden. I believe the contents will impress you and lead to a positive change in your garden.
