The Basics of Permaculture Design, by Ross Mars
The Basics of Permaculture Design, first published in Australia in 1996, is an excellent introduction to the principles of permaculture, design processes, and the tools needed for designing sustainable gardens, farms, and larger communities.
Packed with useful tips, clear illustrations, and a wealth of experience, it guides you through designs for gardens, urban and rural properties, water harvesting systems, animal systems, permaculture in small spaces like balconies and patios, farms, schools, and eco-villages. This is both a do-it-yourself guide for the enthusiast and a useful reference for permaculture designers.
Starting with the principles, design processes, and tools needed for designing, Ross Mars takes us through water harvesting, urban and rural designs, gardens, permaculture in schools and communities, and appropriate technology.
Ross Mars is an experienced permaculture teacher, designer and consultant. He is a qualified high school teacher and has been actively involved in permaculture education in schools. He is the author of the well known text The Basics of Permaculture Design and has also produced an educational video on energy efficient housing called Passive Solar Design of Buildings.
