Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture, 2nd Edition

Product Description

Ships from Vermont

Imported from USA

The first edition of Gaia’s Garden sparked the imagination of America’s home gardeners, introducing permaculture’s
central message: Working with Nature, not against her, results in more beautiful, abundant, and forgiving gardens. This
extensively revised and expanded second edition broadens the reach and depth of the permaculture approach for urban and
suburban growers.

Many people mistakenly think that ecological gardening—which involves growing a wide range of edible and other useful
plants—can take place only on a large, multiacre scale. As Hemenway demonstrates, it’s fun and easy to create a
“backyard ecosystem” by assembling communities of plants that can work cooperatively and perform a variety of functions,

* Building and maintaining soil fertility and structure
* Catching and conserving water in the landscape
* Providing habitat for beneficial insects, birds, and animals
* Growing an edible “forest” that yields seasonal fruits, nuts, and other foods

This revised and updated edition also features a new chapter on urban permaculture, designed especially for people in
cities and suburbs who have very limited growing space. Whatever size yard or garden you have to work with, you can
apply basic permaculture principles to make it more diverse, more natural, more productive, and more beautiful. Best of
all, once it’s established, an ecological garden will reduce or eliminate most of the backbreaking work that’s needed to
maintain the typical lawn and garden.
