Description du produit
Revue de presse
There, at an altitude which everyone else has abandoned to low-value forestry, what is probably the best example of a permaculture farm in Europe stands out like a beacon. --Patrick Whitefield, permaculture author and teacher
The range of the permaculture applications covered is extensive. From major landscape design & works to small scale projects in high rise apartments. Holzer presents new ways of thinking about & practising: agriculture; growing fruit trees and fungi, and kitchen & medicinal gardening. At the end of the book are some inspiring case studies of projects from around the world. --Carl Legge, author of The Permaculture Kitchen

He talks about permaculture, principles that he has been applying even before the term was coined. He has some great ideas, and you only have to see the pictures of his farm to know that they really work.
What I didn't like about it was that although he tells us what he did on his farm, he doesn't give enough details on how he does them. He whets your appetite for his methods, but then doesn't tell you enough. For example, he says stuff like: "I use foxglove to improve the health of the soil, among other reasons". It only leaves me wondering, what are those reasons?
He keeps telling that he has been watching the nature for 40 years, but he doesn't give the recipes for his plant mixtures. Instead, he suggests that one should observe nature and experiment for oneself.
I bought the book precisely to learn from his experiences, instead of having to spend years observing nature myself.
But overall it is a fascinating read, especially if you want an introduction to permaculture. It is a great lesson on thinking outside the box and succeeding against all odds. You can feel his love and respect for nature and for his land.
I live in Cleveland, Ohio area where several farms claim to be using permaculture method. I have visited every farm there is in the 60 mile radius and to my disappointment not one had any resemblance to permacutlure let alone Sepp's method. The highlight and what I walked away with by reading Sepp's book is: mix the plant species up and let the nature create the necessary balance to produce the best with the least amount of effort.
It is written in a personal, down-to-earth and very logical way. Everything that Mr Holzer wrote made total sense and aligned with my own observations.
This is a very practical book too. I've read (at least tried) many permaculture books, they tend to be very scholarly and somewhat detached from reality. This book is as practical as can be. It does not over-complicate anything
I've started implementing many things from this book and they do work in practice. Be warned though: this book is about working with the nature, not about using unnatural shortcuts, so things will take time. But eventually, you will end up with a thriving, stable and productive garden that doesn't require a ton of maintenance.
I want to thanks Mr Holzer for writing this book and sharing his knowledge with mankind!
