The best designed detailed permaculture book I've got - I particularly enjoy the physical design and layout and I am starting to understand why things I've done before have not always worked (particularly around mapping!). The fact it is portable is so important to me as the time that I get to read books is normally when I'm travelling. Great it's not repeating much of the information covered in other core texts too. --Lusi Alderslowe, apprentice teacher and diploma tutor
I really enjoyed the read and know the advice will help me to clarify ideas and communicate designs as I put the designs online. Love the advice on slowing down, I've classically rushed a few times and the results both led to learning and act as reminders! --Nick Waitz, teacher

I understand the importance of the permaculture design class and the impact it has on your thinking and your way of life. So I take the information gained during that designer class very seriously, no book will ever replace the designer class but it can serve as a preparation tool or to fill in gaps that might not have been covered in as much detail as you would like in the 72 hour designer class. For me, I wanted to look at the organization tools and the way that Aranya organized the flow of the mass amount of information to be gathered, evaluated, and organized to create a final permaculture design. And this book did not disappoint me. The book was full of information to assist you in the creation of your design from start to finish using simple tools, freely available software, and professional advice.
The book is organized in three major sections, the first covers the preparations which include observation skills and a brief description of the concepts of permaculture along with working with groups and conflict resolution. The second section covered the design process with details on the site survey and an excellent section on basic map types, map making using basic tools such as compass and measurements, and how to create your own maps, flowcharts, sector and solar maps, and soil type. Additional discussion on the client interview process, goal setting, choosing your systems and elements, and finally starting to create a design proposal of your thoughts and client wishes. The next information provided are details of how to organize the project using time lines, Pert and Gantt charts, the creation of a maintenance plan, resource list and finally how to create your formal presentation to the client. The third section provides information on organizational tools labeled incremental design that include additional flowcharts, mind mapping, the use of a diary, social structures and interaction between various networking groups for social stability and sustainability. Appendices, a resource list and glossary are also provided. The book is heavily illustrated with color images of every phase of the design process, and descriptions of computer based software are also provided as a guide to making professional presentations and reports using open source software, freely available to everyone at no charge.
The book was a pleasure to read, well thought out and presented with a desire to educate but also inspire us to make changes, changes in our own lives and for the good of the ones around us, changes of future generations to come by showing us just how easy it is to make those changes.
Here, in this packed volume, there is a wealth of techniques and strategies for the newby and the not so newby alike. I am enjoying the read and I am recommending this book to all my students at Gaia University.
Thanks for gathering all this together Aranya and thanks for explaining it all in your clear, informal and yet complete style ...
I have not found any one of the multitude of Permaculture books on the market to be as easy-to-understand and as inspiring a read as this one. Many thanks to Aranya for this gem of a book.
