Permaculture Design is a powerful tool for creating systems that meet our needs while supporting the ecosystem as a whole. It applies ecological principles to designing gardens, farms, community projects and human settlements. The standard 72 hour Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is taught worldwide to farmers, gardeners, design professionals and everyday folk who are interested in creating a healthier, more equitable planet.
Rosemary Morrow provides information on each unit of the PDC’s curriculum. Using real life experience and gathered evidence of permaculture’s effectiveness, this fully revised and updated edition contains a wealth of technical information for teachers of PDC’s. Included in this text are new findings in emerging disciplines, such as regenerative agriculture.
An important text for teachers and students in the areas of:
- Landscape design
- Regenerative agricultures
Redesigned to sit neatly alongside its companion the Earth User’s Guide to 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.
