Earth User’s Guide to Permaculture Second Edition will teach you, step-by-step, how to observe and assess a site and how to turn those observations into a flourishing permaculture garden design. It doesn’t matter the size of the site; a small inner-city balcony, through to a rural property, Rosemary Morrow guides you through all the varying living situations.
Perfect for beginners just discovering permaculture through to advanced permaculture practitioners wanting new ideas for resilient living. This book is essentially a Permaculture Design Course in book format!

- Seed saving
- Permaculture in the workplace
- Integrated pest management
- Domestic and rural water usage and management
- Ethically dealing with weeds
- Living in harmony with wildlife
- Designing to withstand natural disasters
Rop Allsop’s warm and accessible illustrations perfectly support Rosemary Morrow’s practical approach to permaculture.
Redesigned to sit neatly alongside its companion Earth User’s Guide to Teaching Permaculture.
About the author
Born in Perth, Australia, Rowe was claimed early by the Earth; plants, animals, stones, weather. Some years in the remote Kimberleys as a young girl confirmed it. She trained in agricultural science with which she was very disappointed, then moved to France where she lived in the L’Arche community. Later at Jordans Village in England she realised she would become a Quaker.
Back in Australia in the 1980s Rowe’s Permaculture Design Course provided the basis for a concern for Earth restoration. She considers permaculture to be ‘sacred knowledge’ to be carried and shared with others. Since then, when asked, she has travelled to teach the PDC to others who, due to circumstances, could not access it any other way. This took her to immediate post-war Vietnam as well as Cambodia, Uganda, Ethiopia and other countries.
Rowe’s present concern is to make teaching sustainable and encourage others to succeed her as teachers.
