Summary
"Permaculture is an important but often misunderstood method of growing food and building homes in a manner that works with nature, rather than against it, to create beautiful, healthy, and useful gardens. Blending ecology, organic agriculture, green home design, appropriate technology, and biology can be confusing and overwhelming, but The Ultimate Guide to Natural Farming and Sustainable Living simplifies this vast field for practical application. This is a hands-on guide, taking the beginner through each step of the design process, so that anyone can apply permaculture principles to his or her life. While the principles are simple, the in-depth topics cover every aspect of permaculture." -- Amazon.com.

Summary
"Find your route to a more sustainable lifestyle with Dick Strawbridge and his son James. We can all take steps to reduce our carbon footprint. For some, that might mean moving and living off the grid. For the rest of us, the reality might involve smaller, but no less important, lifestyle changes: cutting back on plastic or food waste, foraging wild produce, growing a few vegetables, making your own plant-based milks, or keeping a chicken or two. Dick and James Strawbridge know what it's like to make these changes. Between them, they've lived on a smallholding, in a terraced house, and even a chateau. In this updated edition of Practical Self-Sufficiency, they share everything they've learned and give you the tools you need for a more rewarding and environmentally conscious life."--provided by publisher.
