...clear and well-illustrated... Review by Rob Hopkins
Review
Rosemary Morrow outlines the principles and the components of permaculture design and then goes on to apply them to two situations, a small urban back garden and a farm. The book is clear and well-illustrated, and each chapter concludes with activities to help deepen your knowledge on that particular area. (Posted on 30/06/2010)
Together with Graham Bell's 'Permaculture Garden', I can honestly say this is a book that changed my life... Review by Graham Burnett
Review
I bought the Earth Users Guide way back in 1994. It was at a time when I'd realised that there was much more to permaculture than making herb spirals and sheet mulch beds, and was desperately hungry to find out more. I'd borrowed Permaculture One and the Designers Manual from the library, but have to admit that as a newcomer didn't find them particularly approachable. Rosemary Morrow's book on the other hand was exactly what I was looking for, and I fondly remember hours spent pouring over its clearly written text, colour photos and the wealth of clear, simple yet beautiful diagrams and illustrations that made the book a visual treat. Drawing on her years of experience in Australia, Vietnam, Cambodia, India and Africa, Morrow communicated the essence of permaculture ethics, principles and design with enthusiasm, translating Holmgren and Mollison's heady but rather theoretical concepts to an accessible 'here's how to do it' approach.Together with Graham Bell's 'Permaculture Garden', I can honestly say this is a book that changed my life... Receiving this new edition was therefore like having a visit from an old friend, being able to spend a good few hours reminiscing and once again sharing their wisdom and inspiration. And as with meeting the best of our old mates, its great to learn that the Earth Users Guide has moved on and grown. In fact its been completely revised and updated to almost twice its original size!
