Banyen's Description: 

Australian permaculture designers and teachers Ross and Jenny Mars outline the steps to transform your garden into a productive living system. Modeled upon the development of their Candlelight Farm, and illustrated with photos and diagrams, this guide encourages the reader to make positive steps towards reconciling human impact with nature—following the permaculture ideal.

Permaculture is based on the ethics of caring for people and our planet. It is about growing your own healthy food, being resourceful and environmentally responsible. Permaculture concepts and ideas can be applied successfully from small suburban units to large farms. Getting Started in Permaculture delivers step-by-step knowledge for a variety of useful projects, including making herb fertilizers, compost, organic sprays for pest control, and much, much more. It also includes how to recycle your soft drink bottles, waste paper, and tires in a number of useful projects such as ponds, fruit fly traps, retaining walls, and solar stills.

Each chapter includes a Permaculture Perspective section which explains some of the principles of permaculture design and reasons for advocated actions.

This practical and accessible guide for gardeners of all skill levels serves as an ideal introduction to the world of permaculture.
