    People and Permaculture

    Caring & Designing for Ourselves, Each Other & The Planet

    This is the first book to explore how to use permaculture design and principles for people - to restore personal, social and planetary well-being. People & Permaculture widens the definition of permaculture from being mainly about land-based systems to include our own lives,relationships and society. This book provides a framework to help each of us improve our ability to care for ourselves, our friends, families and for the Earth.
