This book will be most beneficial if you apply it to the space where you live and work. The same principles apply for becoming more sustainable and living lightly whether you live in a small city apartment with a balcony, in a house with a garden in the suburbs, or on acreage in the country.
Included in this new edition are chapters on seed-saving, permaculture at work, integrated pest management, information about domestic as well as rural water usage, a non-destructive approach towards dealing with weeks and wildlife, and designing to withstand a disaster.
Earth User's Guide to Permaculture is suitable for beginners as well as experienced permaculture practitioners looking for new ideas in moving towards greater self-reliance and sustainable living.

This latest issue of the James Backhouse Lecture Series looks at the issue of Earth restoration from a religious perspective. The author is passionate about restoring environments and considers permaculture 'sacred' knowledge to be carried and sha...
Born in Perth, Rowe was claimed early by the Earth; plants, animals, stones, weather. Some years in the Kimberleys as a young girl confirmed it. She trained in agriculture science with which she was very disappointed, then moved to France where she lived in the L'Arche community. Later at Jordans Village in England she realised she would become a Quaker.
Back in Australia in the 1980s Rowe's Permaculture Design Course provided the basis for a concern for Earth restoration. She considers permaculture to be 'sacred knowledge' to be carried and shared with others. Since then, when asked, she has travelled to teach the PDC to others who, due to circumstances, could not access it any other way. This took her to immediate post-war Vietnam as well as Cambodia, Uganda, Ethiopia and other countries.
Rowe's present concern is to make teaching sustainable and encourage others to succeed her as teachers.
