Product Description

Imported from USA


"Become a sustainable producer of resources instead of a wasteful consumer. This wonderful book shows you how by helping
you create and enhance beautiful backyard ecosystems within the garden. Put this book into action, and you'll begin to
live an example that positively shifts your own community and beyond. Best of all, doing so with this book is simple,
juicy, and fun."--Brad Lancaster, author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond and

"Toby's fun, well-grounded, and engaging book is fast becoming a classic, and deservedly so. Practical yet visionary,
broad-ranging yet focused on the basics one needs to know, this is a great place to start on the permaculture path. The
new edition builds solidly on the success of the first. Congratulations!"--Dave Jacke, co-author of the two-volume
Edible Forest Gardens

"The world didn't come with an operating manual, so it's a good thing that some wise people have from time to time
written them. Gaia's Garden is one of the more important, a book that will be absolutely necessary in the world
ahead."--Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and Hope, Human and Wild

"Permaculture gardens are no longer a thing of the future. They are here to stay and flourish. Gaia's Garden is
enlightening and required reading for all people who desire to make their home's landscape healthy, sustainable, and
healing."--Robert Kourik, author of Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape--Naturally

"Gaia's Garden is simply the best permaculture book ever written, and is in the running for best gardening book ever
written. No one should be without it."--Sharon Astyk, author of Depletion and Abundance: Life on the New Home Front

"Toby Hemenway's Gaia's Garden will be recorded in history as a milestone for gardeners and landscapers--a fusion of the
practical and the visionary--using the natural intelligence of Earth's symbiotic communities to strengthen and sustain
ecosystems in which humans are a partner, not a competitor. An amazing achievement showing how we can and must live in
harmony with nature!"--Paul Stamets, author of Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World

About the Author

Toby Hemenway was the author of the first major North American book on permaculture, Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to
Home-Scale Permaculture, as well as The Permaculture City. After obtaining a degree in biology from Tufts University,
Toby worked for many years as a researcher in genetics and immunology, first in academic laboratories at Harvard and the
University of Washington in Seattle, and then at Immunex, a major medical biotech company. At about the time he was
growing dissatisfied with the direction biotechnology was taking, he discovered permaculture, a design approach based on
ecological principles that creates sustainable landscapes, homes, and workplaces. A career change followed, and Toby and
his wife spent ten years creating a rural permaculture site in southern Oregon. He was associate editor of Permaculture
Activist, a journal of ecological design and sustainable culture, from 1999 to 2004. He taught permaculture and
consulted and lectured on ecological design throughout the country, and his writing appeared in magazines such as Whole
Earth Review, Natural Home, and Kitchen Gardener. Toby passed away in 2016.
