Your work has taken my initial interest in Permaculture to a new level. I just received Volume One of Edible Forest Gardens and am filled with great enthusiasm and excitement, as I have had a great feeling about your work for months now. I am grateful to both you and Eric for adding more meaning, education and drive to one of my strongest interests and passions...cultivation of our land. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge and vision that I am certain will enhance mine. I'm ready to start reading...and continue my journey in expanding my Ecological Vision...with so much Thanks to you both. Great...Great work!!!!! Clearly a labor of love. Thank-you!! Thank-you!!!! Be Well..

This book is extremely informative, readable, understandable, and well organized. It contains a lot of info that I don’t find elsewhere. I love it.



Dave, your book(s) are blowing my mind. Where do you store all that in your brain? Your head should be as large as a mountain! Thank you so much for such a generous contribution of your soul. I am extremely inspired.
