rediscover what our ancestors knew but we’ve forgotten Review by Kerry Walters
Review
Patrick Whitefield has done a marvellous job of introducing the worldview and techniques of permaculture to beginners. Give it a read and rediscover what our ancestors knew but we’ve forgotten: that humans must live in harmony with nature or cease to live. (Posted on 02/11/2012)
Highly recommended Review by A. COTTON
Review
This is a great introduction to the concept of permaculture. I enjoyed the book so much I went and did a course with Patrick. Both are highly recommended. (Posted on 02/11/2012)
What a great little book Review by Mr. T. Carr
Review
as with many nuts - there is a whole lot of protein and other good things in a small package!! The book is a great introduction to permaculture, perfect for the beginner who wants to know about farms, gardens, and city living and not just to specialise in one area. It has great examples and is very well written, and has a great biblio at the end to give lots of info sources. To sum up, its a great mulch from which to grow ideas! (Posted on 02/11/2012)
Patrick's suggestions work! Review by R. Griffiths
Review
Though this book is less than a hundred pages long, it has enough detail to get you started on some serious practical projects. The information on ‘making a mulch bed’ transformed my stony, undiggable back yard into a highly productive vegetable garden in just one growing season, with very little effort (and thankfully no digging!). The book also includes plenty of contact details for taking permaculture further, which, after reading Permaculture in a Nutshell, you will be unable to resist! (Posted on 02/11/2012)
Demystifies permaculture for newbies Review by Review on healthylifeessex.co.uk
Review
Permaculture is still a topic not understood by many and Permaculture in a Nutshell serves to explain the principles and practice of permaculture in a temperate climate. This book will certainly wet the appetite of anyone wishing to reduce their environmental impact and be part of the move to a more sustainable society.

a practical agricultural roadmap Review by S. Siegal, Planet Earth
Review
This little book furnishes a practical agricultural roadmap for moving away from a deceptive global ethos of entitlement, greed, impractical resource depletion and unsupportable infrastructure. Those who read this tiny volume take the first step toward a real stewardship ethic which must surely replace today’s attitudes, lest Western Civilisation - or even humanity - perish.

Clearly written, full of easily applied suggestions and complete with a section giving details on further reading and useful contacts, this book should be required reading for all budding permaculturists. Review by Rob Weston
Review
After a short but compelling introduction to the key issues, the bulk of the book is divided into explorations of the subjects which most people will be keen to learn about: 'In The City', 'In The Garden', 'On The Farm' and 'In The Community'. Permaculture In A Nutshell gives plenty of useful ideas on urban solutions. Perhaps best of all, this book makes you want to act. Clearly written, full of easily applied suggestions and complete with a section giving details on further reading and useful contacts, this book should be required reading for all budding permaculturists.

This excellent little book serves as a very good introduction to the subject. Review by Rob Hopkins
Review
This excellent little book serves as a very good introduction to the subject, covering all the basic elements of the subject, as well as illustrating it with examples more relevant to this climate than many of the Australian books. It is an great little book to give to people who know nothing about permaculture. It is beautifully illustrated and is the only permaculture book that you can fit in your back pocket (if you have large back pockets). (Posted on 30/06/2010)
