Descriptions du produit

* The massive degradation of conventional agriculture and the environmental havoc it creates has never been as all pervasive in terms of scale, so it has become a global necessity to further the understanding of a comprehensive design and planning system such as permaculture that works with nature, not against it. The guild concept often used is one of a 'functional relationship' between plants - beneficial groupings of plants that share functions in order to bring health and stability to a plant regime and create an abundant yield for our utilization. This guide covers in detail both what guilds are and how to design and construct them.

It is an excellent summary of both basic permaculture principles and forest gardening 5 août 2014
Par DC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I ordered this from the publisher in order to get it before it was released on Amazon (received it on 8/2/14) and have read it from cover to cover.

It is an excellent summary of both basic permaculture principles and forest gardening, while still managing to include practical specifics on actual planting/guild exemplars. Forest gardening in temperate zones is becoming a hot topic and coincidentally there are growing numbers of blogs, books, and e-courses about them, but most tend to speak in over-arching and basic terms. While this did contain a good bit of basic ecological/permaculture background material, it was well written and included specific and interesting tid-bits peppered throughout.

Of particular interest to me are the 15 plant guild examples at the end of the book, something that seems to be lacking in a lot of literature provided by the same people who are offering up their services as consultants. I wish the authors had provided some more real-life photographic evidence of those guilds in action to go along with the planting diagrams, but it still is more than most provide (*hint to any aspiring forest gardening/permaculture design authors out there; we like pictures and drawings!).

All in all, I enjoyed reading it and will likely return to it for inspiration and ideas.

Only for beginners. Disappointing. 10 septembre 2014
Par Sébastien Debande - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I admit that it's probably a good book for early beginners and people who just passed their PDC, and who don't have any other book. If you're on a budget, and are searching for THE ONE book that will tell most of what you need on Food Forest, you can maybe go for this one.
It can be read as an introduction to the topic, before reading Edible Forest Gardening (those ones will require more time and money, for sure).

Most of if (the 6 first chapters) have been written before in a few other books published very recently, and is just part of the regular PDC program.

The last chapter (n#7) with the guilds examples - praised as the most interesting - contain no pictures (so those examples are all theoretical ?) and contain a few mistakes (so yes, it is probably theoretical, although the very 1rst one is described as being a real life example) such as recommending planting comfrey in Texas (poor comfrey in hot hot summer looks sooOOoo sad, and needs constant irrigation) a mistake I personally made in south France, and won't do again. Same for asian pear; not the best choice for Texas - think of peaches, figs, mesquite, some apple varieties...etc But Asian pear for Texas ? :-/
Oh well, I guess you'd say that "it depends"..

Even worse, they recommend planting Lily of the Valley as a medicinal plant (good luck guys, - see you in the after-life !) when forgetting basic ones, such as rosemary, thyme etc... The guild called "poison guild" could be a good idea (if called "medicinal guild", for example), but here, it's just odd, and even potentially dangerous for over-enthusiastic readers(unless you're some kind of "Borgia permie").
I'll pass on the short description of comfrey copy/pasted on 2 or 3 pages, and again summed up in at least 1 other page.

I was obviously disappointed, and it sucks, because I know the authors are great people and had the best intentions (sorry guys, it's just my personal opinion !).

Anyway... Certainly, lots of people will be more interested than I was, but I would not recommend it for whoever already read Bill Mollison, Dave Jacke and Ben Falk, or the excellent Peter Bane.

Not enough fact-checking! 22 novembre 2014
Par E. Kesenheimer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I really wanted to like this book. I even forgave it for going over very basic stuff (global warming is real, garbage is bad, trees are good). However, after skipping past the first half of the book with its 'intro to permaculture for people living under a rock' I started finding errors. Obvious errors that just made me think that this book was another armchair permie bunch with lofty ideals but not a lot of experience. I'm sure that's not true.

However, let's look at p.156: "the natural brain tanning or plant tanning process ensures the softest and most beautiful of all leathers." No. Brain tanning is soft, but this is in a discussion about oaks. Vegetable tanned leather is what you use for shoe soles and saddles - it doesn't dye well or look nice, and it's hard as a rock. Then they proceed to list medicinal uses for oak bark that are spurious at best, and there were no footnotes for those uses to any reputable herbal medicine books.

A few pages later when writing about maples they say, "...along with one species in the western United States, the Rocky Mountain maple." Um, no. We have two major species and a host of subspecies. I know y'all are from Illinois, but if you have a section on maples you might want to look up western species...it's not terribly difficult or time-consuming.

I'm not impressed. I'm giving three stars rather generously, with the caveat that YOU SHOULD NOT FOLLOW ANY HERBAL MEDICINE REMEDIES IN THIS BOOK.

The first 200 hundred pages of this book are literary dustballs found under the bookshelf. The 60 or so pages of Chapter 7, the 10 case studies of plant guild combinations is useful information..... but was not really worth $30 bucks I paid.
Creating a forest garden by Crawford was a much better use of my cash....

Most of the guilds require 50" of rain. so was not written for the west. I wish that was expessed in the description.I live in California foothills and not the desert, our average is only about 32" and lower than that with the drought. So I was disappointed. Probably much more useful if you live in a high rain area. Where we can go 6 to 8 months with out a drop.
