I had originally bought this little handbook in hopes that it would be a cheap, quick and useful read I could recommend to homeowners after I install environmentally-friendly landscaping. However, there is better information, more easily found, on the internet than in this book. A large fraction of it consists of one-liner blurbs about how to make just about everything you never needed out of old tires or soft drink bottles (what permaculture practitioner has that many soda bottles sitting around?). The rest is, generally, too short and vague--and occasionally too silly--to be useful. (Hand-made paper? Really? That's the most detailed recycling project procedure you have to ramble about? My fifth-grade art teacher taught it better.) Their tree-planting advice, in particular, is bad in almost every respect--almost every step they advise has been shown by research over the past century--that's right, some of it is a century out of date--to be useless at best, and more often downright counterproductive. For heaven's sake, if you don't know any better than this, check Edible Forest Gardens, Volume Two, out from the library before you start planting. Better yet, buy it--you'll more than make up the price in savings if you ever try to plant more than a few trees or shrubs. The instructions for such permaculture mainstays as sheet mulching and circle beds were vague enough to be equally useless, if not actively encouraging bad practices.
I admit, there were a few ideas I did walk away thinking about--some of their homemade herbal pesticide sprays, for instance, but they say nothing about whether any of their preparations can be used on plants that will be eaten, or if so, how long one should wait before eating them. Basically, before I use anything out of this book, I'm going to have to go elsewhere to research it, make sure it's okay advice, and find out all the missing details.

Some good ideas, but not an intensive amount of information given on permaculture. I would suggest a more informational book.
This just has a few pages of suggestions of crafty repurposing ideas and a very remedial overview of some permaculture ideas. It's not bad, just not much to it in my opinion.

If you've already read permaculture theory from the greats (Holtzer, Hemenway, Mollison, and Holmgren), you may be inspired, but overwhelmed at its complexity and the sheer amount of work involved in building a sustainable garden. Mars' e-book, Getting Started in Permaculture, makes all the theory digestible and cheap. Many of these projects can be accomplished by one person in a couple of hours with scavenged materials. The instructions in this e-book go very well with Geoff Lawton's video "Urban Permaculture" (see [...]).

If you want to skip all the theory (most of it) this is the perfect book for you. It gives you a lot of ideas to star now. I only give it three stars because after browsing through it you'll be left wanting more (maybe this is a good thing) and eventually go out and get another permaculture book. I recommend starting with Gaia's Garden instead, it gives you both theory (without being overwhelming) and practice in a much nicer presentation and depth.

After a brief discussion of what permaculture is and hopes to accomplish, the authors present 50 projects for your garden. Some of them are common garden structures and some are aimed at reusing tires and plastic soda bottles. Retaining wall, ponds, planting mounds from used tires. Waterers, slug traps for plastic bottles, newspaper planting pots. Making compost, liquid fetilizers, hot houses, cold frames, shade houses. A section on making paper, soap, and cleaners.

Not an indepth discussion of permaculture, but a basic get started projects book.

Absolutely a wonderful and informative book. Easy to read and apply. The only difficulty I had was that measurements were in metric, but easily converted. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in getting a start in permaculture. The projects are practical and explained down to the last detail - including pictures and suggested materials. A MUST BUY!

This is an excellent very thin book. Great start but I expected there to be more!
a must read for everyone aware of the critical need to get back in harmony with our Earth home.
