Publisher's Summary

How to build and live a sustainable life on your property and in your garden without having to hire an expensive contractor, even if you have no idea on what permaculture is.

Permaculture is about designing sustainable human settlements. It is a philosophy and an approach to land use which weaves together micro-climate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management, and human needs into intricately connected productive communities.

In this audiobook, you will discover:

  • How to create a healthy environment for yourself and your family
  • How permaculture design is a way to take back control over your life
  • The environmentally friendly and cost-saving techniques that will make designing your property easy and beneficial
  • How to create sustainable landscaping that will have a positive impact on your environment and your health.
  • And so much more!

Permaculture isn't just growing food in the backyard. It is designing a system that uses nature as a tool to provide year-round food and shelter. Every time we design a garden, we are creating our own piece of the ecosystem.

Interest in permaculture has been growing, and it's no surprise - permaculture is something that we can take with us wherever we go, and it doesn't take up a lot of space. The techniques are applicable all over the world and can be used to grow just about anything.

You can design that outdoor oasis that you deserve by using the essentials of permaculture.

This is really informational for me.

Listening audiobooks on sustainability starts at a beginner's level and you are left fishing for information that is new

Permaculture basics

Still trying to figure out who this book is for. Would anyone who knows the the word "permaculture" not know the basics of photosynthesis? This is something taught in the 5th grade here in the US. If you can get past the overarticulated narration, in this book you will find many extremely basic principles like that. Not saying anything was wrong in the book, but it certainly doesn't cover any new information. There are much better permaculture books on audible than this one. My bad for not listening to the sample, the narration was difficult to listen to.
