Permaculture Design Companion
The Permaculture Design Companion is a practical 190 page workbook that uses permaculture tools to bring your project to reality.
This is a practical workbook to apply permaculture to your OWN project from start to finish. It is a step by step guide for integrating places and people, buildings and ecosystems.
The Permaculture Design Companion is a thorough and effective design tool, suitable for absolute beginners and advanced practice. The process can be used for small to large projects, in urban spaces or the countryside, whatever your situation.
This unique resource combines analysis, creativity and inner work. This book will inspire you to design with Nature; bring clarity and organisation to your ideas; and provide the momentum and support to make your design into reality.
