This book gives you the tools to succeed.
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.
Building Your Permaculture Property distills the authors’ decades of experience and insights gained as engineers, farmers, educators, and consultants into practices, templates, productivity and workflow tools to help you:
- Clarify your vision, values and resources
- Diagnose your resources for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats
- Design your resources to meet your vision and values
- Implement the right design that will most improve your weakest resource
- Monitor your resources for indicators of well-being or suffering
This book is the essential guide for any land steward looking to stop the overwhelm and start building an ecologically regenerative, financially sustainable, enjoyable, and thriving permaculture property, anywhere in the world.
