Revue de presse

I bought the Earth Users Guide way back in 1994. It was at a time when I'd realised that there was much more to permaculture than making herb spirals and sheet mulch beds, and was desperately hungry to find out more. I'd borrowed Permaculture One and the Designers Manual from the library, but have to admit that as a newcomer didn't find them particularly approachable. Rosemary Morrow's book on the other hand was exactly what I was looking for, and I fondly remember hours spent pouring over its clearly written text, colour photos and the wealth of clear, simple yet beautiful diagrams and illustrations that made the book a visual treat. Drawing on her years of experience in Australia, Vietnam, Cambodia, India and Africa, Morrow communicated the essence of permaculture ethics, principles and design with enthusiasm, translating Holmgren and Mollison's heady but rather theoretical concepts to an accessible 'here's how to do it' approach. After giving an overview of ecological concepts such as understanding landscape, soil, water and climate, the book covered practical applications of permaculture in the home and garden as well as more broadscale areas of farming, aquacultures, orchard and forest management, finally looking at 'social permaculture' strategies such as LETS and bioregionalism. Together with Graham Bell's 'Permaculture Garden', I can honestly say this is a book that changed my life... Receiving this new edition was therefore like having a visit from an old friend, being able to spend a good few hours reminiscing and once again sharing their wisdom and inspiration. And as with meeting the best of our old mates, its great to learn that the Earth Users Guide has moved on and grown. In fact its been completely revised and updated to almost twice its original size! In particular the sections on urban permaculture and community building have been expanded, and there are new sections on 'weeds', wildlife gardening, seed saving and pest management, as well as the introduction of concepts like Ecological Footprinting that were virtually unknown in the early 1990s. And best of all, there are loads more new pictures! Morrow continues to empower with her vision that permaculture possibilities are not only open to anybody whatever their circumstances or situation, but can be fun too! --Graham Burnett, Permaculture Magazine

For those readers who want an easy-to-follow and get-to-the-point manual for designing their property according to permaculture principles, this book is it. About a third of the book is foundational material on earth science: air, weather, soil, plants, etc. Starting with the basics, like observation and note taking, the author guides us step by step to help us understand the macro (the earth) and the micro (our backyard) world around us. The next third of the book helps you to start planning your own property based on the principles uncovered in the first third. Photos and cartoon-like illustrations help flesh out the concepts. --www.alcoholcanbeagas.com

Another Australian permaculturist, Rosemary Morrow, who had been teaching Permaculture around the world for a while, published The Earth Users Guide to Permaculture, written more as a school textbook than Mollison's books. However, rather than dumbing down permaculture, she has distilled the essence into an easily understood format which makes it much more accessible. She outlines the principles and the components of permaculture design and then goes on to apply them to two situations, a small urban back garden and a farm. The book is clear and well-illustrated, and each chapter concludes with activities to help deepen your knowledge on that particular area. The book does have a leaning towards Australian plants and ecologies, but its clear elucidation of the principles and practice of permaculture make it a very accessible and useful. --Rob Hopkins, www.transition.org

Présentation de l'éditeur

A simple guide for living a more sustainable lifestyle, Earth Users Guide to Permaculture illustrates how to assess and design a permaculture garden of any size, whether you live in a small city apartment; a house with a garden; on acreage in the country; or anything between or beyond! The principle for permaculture is simple: provide back to the earth what we take from it to create a sustainable environment. The three principle aims are: Care for people; Care for the earth; and Reduce consumption and distribute surplus. This completely revised and updated edition of Rosemary Morrows highly successful Earth Users Guide to Permaculture is a straight-forward manual of practical permaculture, emphasising design science. Included in this new edition are chapters on seed-saving, integrated pest management, information about domestic as well as rural water usage, a non-destructive approach towards dealing with weeks and wildlife, and designing to withstand a disaster. Chapter 19: Permaculture at the office, shop and factory, demonstrates how permaculture goes beyond the garden to how we live our lives at work, and how and what we procure to meet our needs and desires. Earth Users Guide to Permaculture is suitable for beginners as well as experienced permaculture practitioners looking for new ideas for moving towards greater self-reliance and sustainable living.

Terrible Representation of Permaculture 8 avril 2014
Par Weston Ginther - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have read quite a few different permaculture books and this was, by far, the worst one. The book never establishes a solid outline or direction and is constantly jumping from one topic to the next. Instead of explaining the principles of permaculture in such a way that gives the reader the knowledge to apply what he/she has read, the author chooses to instruct the readers to perform somewhat futile tasks. For example, the author dedicates nearly an entire chapter on how to conduct a water audit for you or your family. While a water audit can sometimes be a useful tool in the "permaculture toolbelt", it should not be the focal or starting point for every property or personal situation like the author would like you to believe.

This book contains so many politically-biased, inaccurate statements it made my head want to explode. Unfortunately, it is these kinds of publications that are holding permaculture back from gaining widespread acceptance. Permaculture can dictate politics but politics should never dictate permaculture. More government regulations (carbon taxes, etc.) are the antithesis of permaculture. This book takes the ethics of permaculture and twists them to meet a certain political goal.

It is also impossible to look any particular topic up in this book since the index is less than a full page long. This book reads like a school textbook, so to have such a small index is terrible book planning.

Please, do NOT waste your money on this book!

Gaia's Garden or Sepp Holzer's Permaculture would be FAR better choices!!

One of Our Favorite Permaculture Books 28 janvier 2013
Par Fred T - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is very practical and tells you how to implement permaculture principles in your landscape or yard. Many books on permaculture get so much into theory that you cannot apply it in a practical manner. This book is not that kind of book. Very easy to read and gives you instruction in regards to implementing permaculture concepts quickly and effectively.

Not a good introduction to permaculture practices 13 décembre 2014
Par Julie C. Allee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having taken a college class in permaculture where this was a required text, I am thoroughly disappointed. Some of the information makes sense, but in general you have to live in utopia (or terraform the planet) in order for much of the information to apply. In reality, we have to work with what we have and make the most of the situations we inherit from previous landowners - and NO piece of property is going to fit the criteria given in this text for where and how to position homes, gardens, etc. Some information is just not right in reality even if on paper it is a great idea. For example, it might make sense logically to store water in a pond uphill from your home so that using gravity you can feed water to the home as needed..... in reality, anyone who has ever had a pond bank wash out in a heavy rain will tell you what a great idea it would be to have a pond uphill from your home.

I was really excited to take this course, but this book had turned me off by the middle of it - I felt myself hating having to use the book for answers and getting more and more sarcastic in my answers because of the absurdity of the rules given. Not everyone starts with a blank slate when becoming interested in permaculture - yet that is what is made it seem like you needed. Ideas on how to incorporate permaculture practices in realistic ways (baby steps) would make it easier to get people started.

A practical piece 1 octobre 2014
Par William R. Crandall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A straightforwardly organized, practical piece. It assumes some exposure to Mollison or Holmgren and does not go beyond them conceptually; however, it provides immediate practical detail with respect to developing and teaching permaculture classes, and a relatively simple framework for teaching that may not be obvious from works with the depth and scope of Mollison's Designer's Manual.
