Présentation de l'éditeur

The urban landscape has swallowed vast swaths of prime farmland across North America. Imagine how much more self-reliant our communities would be if thirty million acres of lawns were made productive again. Permaculture is a practical way to apply ecological design principles to food, housing, and energy systems, making growing fruits, vegetables, and livestock easier and more sustainable.The Permaculture Handbook is a step-by-step, beautifully illustrated guide to creating resilient and prosperous households and neighborhoods, complemented by extensive case studies of three successful farmsteads and market gardens. This comprehensive manual casts garden farming as both an economic opportunity and a strategy for living well with less money. It shows how, by mimicking the intelligence of nature and applying appropriate technologies such as solar and environmental design, permaculture can:*Create an abundance of fresh, nourishing local produce *Reduce dependence on expensive, polluting fossil fuels*Drought-proof our cities and countryside*Convert waste into wealthPermaculture is about working with the earth and with each other to repair the damage of industrial overreach and to enrich the living world that sustains us. The Permaculture Handbook is the definitive practical North American guide to this revolutionary practice, and is a must-read for anyone concerned about creating food security, resilience, and a legacy of abundance rather than depletion.Peter Bane is a permaculture teacher and site designer who has published and edited Permaculture Activist magazine for over twenty years. He helped create Earthaven Ecovillage in North Carolina, and is now pioneering suburban farming in Bloomington, Indiana.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Important and timely addition to my libary 15 juillet 2012
Par H.Hieronimi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Although allready a permacultuture pracitioner and enthusiast for more than 20 years, this one had many features new to me. Peter Bane gives us really a in-depth look of permaculture principles and practices in this great book. The Graden-Farming outlook is definietly a new feature treated in depth here, very necesary-
The only flaw (for somebody like me, who is living in mexico) is that it is 100% written for the US...but I'm so used to have to translate this kind of info to other climates and circumstances, so Im NOT taking away one star, beacuse all the rest is so great.
Timely outlook to Permaculture, practical and theorectical info, Bane is also an excelent writer, and this book is in my opinion the third book that is a must in any serious PC libary, after Mollisons Designers Manual, and Holmgrens "Principles and Pathways..."
Not to be missed, excelent for beginners and advanced...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive, good, US-Centric 22 décembre 2012

You could do worse than treat this book as a comprehensive update of the "technique" material in Mollison's "Permaculture: A Designer's Manual". There's a lot of value, a lot of practical wisdom and a lot of updated science (soil science, agronomy, ecology, human and animal nutrition) in this big book. The comparatively recent technique of a pattern language as a further aid to design is also a welcome addition. Naturally, zones, sectors, stacking, succession and the rest of the thinking tools are still here as well. It's fascinating to see Permaculture insights elaborated and developed in a second generation literature. Helpful, too.

The reference point is the urban-fringe "garden farm", producing foods for its occupants, neighbours and local markets, rather than Mollison's upland valley-scale farmstead or hamlet. But it has always been clear that Permaculture aspirations and techniques apply at scales from apartment balconies to broad-acre farms.

I guess I can't complain about a North American perspective on climate, species, etc. Much of Mollison's work was very Australian-centric. But it would be an improvement in the Permaculture literature generally to get global. Mollison and Holmgren tended towards language like "pole-wards" instead of South for the shady side, and international climate type classifications instead of national ones. They weren't fully consistent, and sometimes the language gets awkward, but I think it's an effort worth making. This book would benefit.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Want to get an overview of what this Permaculture thing is? Don't start here. There are short, accessible books that introduce you to the body of thought and practice that this book covers in comprehensive detail.

If you've read those and want the full Monty, this is one of the very best.

Disclaimer: I'm not an accredited Permaculture designer/practitioner/teacher/whatever. The official side doesn't do much for me. Permaculture is a body of ideas, aspirations and techniques for land care/land use that I've danced with ever since I heard Mollison speak at a camp in the Australian bush in 1974.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Indispensable reading 6 septembre 2012
Par Desert Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Permaculture Handbook is the most accessible, most practically useful permaculture book out there. The place Bane especially gets it right, and where many others don't, is the manner in which he stacks, folds, and integrates the structure and content of the book. It mimics a whole system itself, with interrelated themes that return at various levels of resolution, in a fractal-like pattern. Bane is wise to utilize Christopher Alexander's "A Pattern Language" as a model for this type of integrated thought. The result is also a delightful and fun read, written with razor-sharp intelligence and some wit thrown in there, too. Ultimately, it is a powerfully visionary work, prescribing a set of design guidelines that can be extended far beyond land-based applications into many other forms of organized human endeavors. But Bane stays mostly in the world of the suburban garden farm here, a place that many people can realistically access. In this way, it retains a manageable scope that I think helps the reader to see permaculture as manifest in a concrete way. Individual chapters work spectacularly well as reference areas, too. The chapter on soil gives one of the most clear-headed and graspable explanations of soil building that this reviewer has read. This is no ordinary work. This one is special.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth the wait and a treasure of inspiration, history & know how. 22 juin 2012
Par Vincent VPK - Publié sur Amazon.com
First, New Society Publishers did a fine production in the release of Mr. Bane's extensive work, which is well illustrated with photos and drawings. Being born at the start of the Space Age (1958), I appreciated the overview of the past and how we "took a wrong turn" in our journey. I easily identified with the background (i.e. "Living the Good Life" by Helen and Scott Nearing) and have an advantage of attending a permaculture course with him as a teacher years ago in Tennessee and even visited Earthaven Ecovillage in North Carolina. That being said, Mr. Bane was very generous in consolidating his over twenty years in this "bible" of topics, examples and real life situations that will propel the most novice or for that matter, experienced, with ideas to start or continue the "dance" of the permaculture gift.
The endnotes section is very useful in pointing out where to go for more detail or further inquiry. There is even an an appendix of useful plants, with other lists inserted throughout the book.
I would have made one small change or addition in the title though, adding the word "Design" to Garden Farming. That's what makes it interesting, creative, challenging, fun with your friends and neighbors.
This is easy to read and a joy to hold. I recommend it highly and plan to share copies as a gift.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Long on ideas, short on details 8 octobre 2012
Par Washu-chan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is an excellent introduction to permaculture that includes a "pattern language" of critical concepts and four honestly work-in-progress case studies. No matter what amount of land you might have or hope to have in the future, this book will provide big ideas and thoughtful suggestions to help you manage and nurture it wisely. It won't do as a sole reference for gardening or homesteading; for example, it encourages the inclusion of small animals and provides general remarks on that subject but not the degree of nitty-gritty detail that you will need to get somewhere else. Since it's intended to speak to people in multiple parts of the world, it can't include region-specific advice about what a gardener should do or when. So pick this up to use in conjunction with another book about gardening or homesteading that is suitable for your region (your state's extension service may also have handy FREE PDFs).
