Low-Impact DIY Solutions From Our Publishing Partners

At Chelsea Green, our mission is to publish books designed to help people live more sustainable, self-sufficient, and ecologically conscious lives. Along with the books that we bring into print, we also partner with publishers and writers around the world and distribute their books throughout the United States.


A new addition to our catalog comes from Green Man Publishing [2]. Author Frank Tozer [3] self-publishes books on plants and their uses. With an abundance of new information on even more crops, The New Vegetable Growers Handbook [1] is the most comprehensive manual on vegetable gardening available. This updated version, like the original, covers the what, when and why of growing common and unique crops, firsthand from Tozer’s gardening expertise.

We are also especially proud to partner with Permanent Publications [4], a forward thinking publisher in the UK. Like Chelsea Green, Permanent Publications produces innovative books and DVDs, and publishes the influential Permaculture [5] magazine.

Below are the newest additions to our catalog from Permanent Publications.
