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.

    Effective Post! I would say thank you so much author for sharing this educational resource for gardening. I hope this gardening e-book will be helpful for vegetable gardeners and me too. Actually, Gardening was my hobby since childhood but I hadn’t proper knowledge to make an ideal garden. Now I completed my graduation last year and doing freelance job at Edubirdie as an academic writer. We are especially working with global students who are struggling to make their academic assignments on their own. So I hope this educational blog will be helpful to be an ideal gardener. Much appreciated the author.
