For a practical path forward, we recommend Rosemary Morrow’s Earth Restorer’s Guide to Permaculture. It is a call to action. It turns our minds to the growing global challenges to Earth’s air, soil and water and shows us that by working in our local patch we can help restore our global ecosystems.

Permaculture co-originator David Holmgren’s practical manual for permaculture living RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future shows how to downshift and retrofit your home, garden, and community. Learn to become more self-organised, sustainable and resilient into an uncertain future.

If you want to understand more about the thinking behind the permaculture concept, make sure you start with Holmgren’s Essence of Permaculture, a precursor to his full length book Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability.
