Permaculture Design Guide
Have you read a book or two, or done a course and still feel unsure about how to make use of permaculture in the real world? This may be just what you need...
"While there are plenty of excellent books already written about permaculture, I hadn't found one that really explained the design process in a step-by-step fashion from start to finish. This was a gap I initially filled on my design courses with a set of worksheets, which were then tried and tested by 15 groups of design course students over 18 months, before being turned into this guide."
