Rob Hopkins describes it as ‘the definitive manual’ Review by Chris Nichols, from Permaculture magazine
Review
Whenever I visit Martin’s garden at Dartington I learn something new and I leave inspired. It is the same with his new book – it deserves to become a classic. There is something of value on every page. Martin divides the book into three main sections: How Forest Gardens Work, Designing Your Forest Garden, and Extra Design Elements and Maintenance. The book is lavishly produced with Joanna Brown’s beautiful full colour photography and helpful line drawings by Marion Smylie-Wild. Martin has included a glossary and four fact-packed, analytical appendices.

Rob Hopkins describes it as ‘the definitive manual’. I agree and I recommend it wholeheartedly. Place it with honour alongside Mollison, Holmgren and Whitefield. Martin’s passion, energy and humour flow out from the pages... He enthusiastically describes some of the unusual salads he puts together, season by season and he even tells us how many times you need to pee near an apple tree to provide it with enough nitrogen (once a week, during the growing season). Martin Crawford is a frontiersman, a pioneering teacher and an inspiration. Both his work and his garden are national treasures.

A book I have been looking forward to Review by Patrick Whitefield - author and permaculture teacher
Martin Crawford has spent 15 years creating what is almost certainly the best forest garden in the temperate world...and the breadth of his knowledge matches the depth of his experience. I've been looking forward to this book ever since I heard he was writing it. (Posted on 12/05/2010)
A seminal piece of work on truly sustainable gardening Review by Alys Fowler - author and presenter
Even if you weren't going to try forest gardening, I challenge you not to want to by the end of this book. This is a seminal piece of work on truly sustainable gardening, written with great spirit and soul. (Posted on 12/05/2010)
