You are already convinced that permaculture design will help you to restore the health of your land, provide security against the fragilities of an ever changing world and create a legacy for the future. But after reading books, watching videos, listening to podcasts, hiring experts, taking courses, and running your own experiments you are on the verge of financial and emotional exhaustion and the property of your dreams still seems a long way off: What should I do? I don’t know where to find information about…? How does everything fit together? Where do I start or what is next? When does it end?
These are common struggles land stewards everywhere are encountering as they work to put permaculture into practice. What you really need isn’t another prescriptive how-to on food forestry or soil ecology or water conservation, but a process to make such a hyper-complex project manageable.
This book gives you the tools to succeed.
