Permaculture Design is a powerful tool for creating systems that meet our human needs but also support the ecosystem as a whole. It applies ecological principles to designing gardens, farms, community projects, even entire human settlements. The standard 72 hour Permaculture Design (PDC) course is taught all over the world to: farmers, gardeners, design professionals and world changers who want to practically create a healthier, more equitable planet.
Rosemary Morrow offers evidence for permaculture’s effectiveness and describes each unit of the PDC’s curriculum. This fully revised and updated edition contains a wealth of technical information for teaching permaculture design and includes new findings in emerging disciplines such as regenerative agriculture.
The Permaculture Teaching Matters eBook (2015), included for free with your purchase, has been created for permaculture teachers who want to teach PDC’s more effectively. The method is an inquiry-based approach: a way of empowering the students to be pro-active in their learning needs and involved in decisions around planning and outcomes.
The Earth User’s Guide to Teaching Permaculture is of key relevance to teachers and students of architecture, landscape design, ecology and other disciplines like geography, regenerative agriculture, agro-ecology and agroforestry, as well as permaculture design.
Paperback, 184 pages, b&w illustrations by Gabrielle Paananen throughout.
