Permaculture: principles and pathways beyond sustainability

 

As co-originator of the permaculture concept, David Holmgren needs no introduction for most permaculturists. Not as controversial or high profile as his mentor and co-originator Bill Mollison, but every bit as capable of turning conventional thinking on it's head, he has been quietly chipping away at the problematic notion of sustainability for years in his writing.

His collection of twelve principles (and associated mnemonic tools: each get a proverb and an icon to assist recall) are immaculately dovetailed and provide a framework for addressing a wide variety of environmental and social problems by thoughtful design.

The companion website for the book also contains many invaluable online resources for permaculture teachers and students alike.
