    In this episode I review Peter Bane’s The Permaculture Handbook: Garden Farming for Town and Country

    Listen to the episode for the full review. In the meantime, for those of you who decided to stop by the website, here is the short version:

    This book is good. Quite good in fact. Another definite to place on a permaculture practitioner’s or enthusiast’s bookshelf next to the works of Mollison, Whitefield, Morrow, and Fukuoka. An easy read, the pace of the prose grabbed my attention from the introduction by David Holmgren and kept me reading through to the appendices: A, B, and C. For anyone just starting out, or someone whose sown seed, transplanted trees, and integrated form and function, “AH HA!” moments abound. New knowledge hides within these pages for anyone who seeks it out.

    Of most value is the Garden Farm Pattern Language gifted to us through this work. This single chapter, and the proceeding one, make this book worth more than the cover price. The integration of ideas and design elements into practical placement via a common language integrate the sometimes seperate parts of our design towards a more cohesive whole.

    If you’ve made it to this point and haven’t done so yet: Buy This Book!
