This is a cookbook for gardeners, a gardening book for cooks, and an inspirational reference for all things permacultural! Permaculture has become increasingly popular as a gardening technique and lifestyle philosophy. Growing our own food and creating nutritious meals free of chemicals and additives appeals to more and more people every year. You Can Have Your Permaculture and Eat It Too offers readers design examples, species lists, tips, diagrams, and exercises for designing and creating productive, edible gardens based on permaculture principles.

Beyond the garden, Clayfield also explains how to use your harvest effectively in your kitchen, green your household, and increase your personal economy by earning money from your hobbies. With dozens of diverse, delicious, mostly vegetarian recipes; information on making cosmetics and gifts and crafts from the garden; as well as a primer on permaculture’s environmental principles and ethics, she has created a reference to appeal not only to those new to green living, but to the seasoned organic gardener and permaculturist as well.

The Vegan Book of Permaculture

The Vegan Book of Permaculture

By Graham Burnett

How we eat is such a fundamental part of what we are; yet, in our present time-poor culture of prepackaged fast foods, food can become an expensive symptom of alienation and disempowerment. It doesn’t have to be this way! The Vegan Book of Permaculture gives us the tools and confidence to take responsibility for our lives and actions. Creating a good meal, either for ourselves or to share, taking time to prepare fresh, wholesome home- or locally grown ingredients with care and respect can be a deeply liberating experience. It is also a way of taking back some control from the advertising agencies and multinational corporations.

In this groundbreaking and original book, Graham demonstrates how understanding universal patterns and principles, and applying these to our own gardens and lives, can make a very real difference to both our personal lives and the health of our planet. This also isn’t so very different from the compassionate concern for "animals, people, and environment" of the vegan way.

Interspersed with an abundance of delicious, healthy, and wholesome exploitation-free recipes, Graham provides solutions-based approaches to nurturing personal effectiveness and health, eco-friendly living, home and garden design, veganic food growing, reforestation strategies, forest gardening, reconnection with wild nature, and community regeneration with plenty of practical ways to be well fed with not an animal dead! This is vegan living at its best.

Permaculture in Pots

Permaculture in Pots

By Juliet Kemp

In these times of rising food prices and renewed interest in all things local, growing food in cities is becoming the big urban trend. Permaculture in Pots shows you how to get started with whatever space you have available--appealing to those who feel powerless to meet their own subsistence needs through lack of growing space.

Month by month we learn what to grow on a balcony or in a container garden, using low impact permaculture principles. It doesn’t matter when you pick up the book and start your journey of container gardening--wherever you are in the year, open the book to that chapter, and it will tell you what you should be doing.

Each month’s section details things to be done: how to plan ahead for the next season, and which fruit, vegetables, and herbs to be sowing, growing and eating.  There are recipes, photos and anecdotes from the author’s experience growing food on her small balcony in a London suburb. Kemp is warm and self-effacing, and makes an excellent guide. Each month has its own herb, with growing tips and culinary and medicinal uses for each.

As uncertainty rises about whether those outside the property ladder will ever get to own their own home, Permaculture in Pots gives power and opportunity back to generations who are becoming more aware of the need of self-sufficiency, and yet find themselves in rented homes with concrete where gardens once were.
