Earth Restorer’s Guide to Permaculture covers practical essentials such as soils, water, microclimates, trees, seeds, design, pattern literacy, pests and weeds.

New in this edition are discussions on air quality, marine permaculture, ‘crowded margins’ (including refugee camps), emerging economic models and livelihoods. Rob Allsop’s accessible illustrations complement and illuminate Rosemary Morrow’s practical approach.

2021 marked the start of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration; a critical period for preventing, halting and reversing the degradation of ecosystems around the world. In recognition, Earth Restorer’s Guide to Permaculture equips readers with the tools, and 40-years of evidence-based practice, to lead the movement.

As part of a growing call to action, Earth Restorer’s Guide to Permaculture entreats and empowers us to launch a new restorative relationship with all life.

The best gift to our world is a planet restored. Here is the guide to do just that!


As a physicist, scholar and environmental activist for more than 40 years, I have come across many dedicated changemakers in my work.

Rosemary is one of the most energetic, global-thinking and innovative teachers of our time. Her work on permaculture and earth restoration has influenced a generation of people around the world to take immediate and considered action that supports the health of our social and environmental systems. Her dedication to writing books, sharing case studies and teaching permaculture at a global scale is unmatched. I admire her work, and I am thankful for her contribution. This award would be a celebration of her immense contribution. – Dr Vandana Shiva, Indian scholar, author and environmental activist.

“This is a magnificent production, highly important for raising everyone’s awareness.” – Professor John D. Wade, Florey Institute for Neuroscience and Mental Health

About the Author

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.
