The Vegetable Gardener’s Guide to Permaculture – Creating an edible ecosystem

by Christopher Shein

In this book, the author, a permaculture gardener and landscaper, teaches gardeners of every level how to produce an abundant food supply with minimal effort and expense, based on the concept of working with nature rather than fighting against it.

After explaining the 12 principles of permaculture, such as observe nature, use renewable resources, produce no waste and value diversity, the author tells us how to design a garden, prepare and cultivate the soil, grow fruits, vegetables, nuts and mushrooms, and cultivate seedlings, all based on sound environmental practices.

By following his advice, you’ll be able to live in harmony with nature as you grow food for yourself and share your bounty with others.
