Permanent Publications

Permanent Publications is the publisher of Permaculture Magazine and a sister company to Green Shopping. We've been publishing permaculture books since 1990, and have since printed some of the world's most influential books on permaculture, including the canonical Earth Care Manual, the best selling introductory guide Permaculture in a Nutshell, and the indispensable How to Make a Forest Garden.

But it's not all just about gardening - Permanent Publications has published some fantastic books on permaculture building techniques, including a string of books by eco-builder Ben Law such as The Woodland House and Roundwood Timber Framing, as well as Building a Low Impact Roundhouse and the detailed guide, DIY 12 Volt Solar Power.

We've also recently added a new book by one of the gurus of permaculture - Sepp Holzer - in which he gives away many of the tips and tricks which have made him one of the most celebrated permaculturists in the world. And don't forget to take a look at Meat: A Benign Extravagance, by journalist and campaigner Simon Fairlie, which is one of the most thorough analyses of the great vegetarian vs meat-eating debates you'll ever read.

If you have an e-reader or a tablet computer, why not consider buying some of our books in electronic, ebook format? They're every bit as good as the printed versions, and we believe they have a lower environmental impact.

As well as FREE UK shipping on orders over £15, we are offering a 10% reduction on all Permanent Publications books.
