This is a great introduction and overview of permaculture concepts. The book covers a lot of material for initiates to permaculture. It's sets the foundation for further reading and studies for those who want to get serious though one could take the principles learned just from this book alone and be quite successful in my opinion. You learn how the sun, wind and rain, all play an important role in siting structures like homes, sheds, barns, green and shade houses and also in garden and plant selection and placement.

Introduction to Permaculture book. Introduction to Permaculture is an updated and revised version of the first two permaculture books, Permaculture One (Mollison and Holmgren, 1978) and Permaculture Two (Mollison, 1979), and replaces them.

When I ordered this book (which is copywrited 1997) they sent me a 2011 version that had a different cover (a colored line drawing of a garden in profile and photos of animals and plants on the top and bottom). It has the same title and the same authors, so I assumed it is the newest version of this book. I gave it one star (as explained below) and sent it back. However, I have now found the 1997 version in the library and I can tell you THEY ARE NOT THE SAME! Do NOT buy the 2011 version. It does not have the same content and is not worth the money.

However, I have upgraded this review from one star to four stars now that I have seen the book that was supposed to have been sent. I am a retired City Planner, and I am not new to the ideas of permaculture. I played with sustainable designs and alternative energy in the early '80s when I was just out of college (I joined a non-profit dedicated to alternative "life systems" as we called it back then). While the 2011 book reminded me of those early days when my friends and I were full of utopian (but impractical) ideas of how bathrooms could be set up inside greenhouses attached to the house so grey water humidified the room and feed the plants, and grey water could be used to flush toilets by placing the shower at a higher elevation than the toilet), the older (1997) version listed here is much more practical and detailed about permaculture and how it might be applied.

So, I do recommend this book as a good introduction to permaculture, although it is lacking in examples where the ideas have actually been applied. If you really want to see these ideas put into action, take a look at "Sepp Holizer's Permaculture" and Darrel Frey's "Bioshelter Market Garden." Good Stuff!!

When I first opened the package, I was dismayed to see the new cover after reading the reviews on how this edition was not the same as the '91 version. I'm not sure what the reviewers were talking about. Every page is exactly the same. I have the older version from the library and I checked a dozen or so different pages and they were all exactly the same--words, pictures, everything. The only difference seems to be that the few pages at the end that advertise some of his other books are missing. Everything else is the same. Happy Permaculturing!

Not the same book as advertised. I received the 2013 edition instead of the 1997 version. The newer version doesn't have as much content. It looks like what Jenn described. Her post was on March 12, 2012.

This is a great introduction and overview of permaculture concepts. The book covers a lot of material for initiates to permaculture. It's sets the foundation for further reading and studies for those who want to get serious though one could take the principles learned just from this book alone and be quite successful in my opinion. You learn how the sun, wind and rain, all play an important role in siting structures like homes, sheds, barns, green and shade houses and also in garden and plant selection and placement. The book also covers designing for temperate, tropical and dry-land environments. It explains how interconnected relationships between the land, climate, soils, water, structures, flora and fauna can be fostered to the benefit of all. There are just so many creative ideas and diagrams in this book that it is worth it for those alone. The book is 8 1/4 X 11 inches with small print that fills the pages with valuable information. I want to live in the sub-tropics of Hawaii and enjoyed the coverage in this regard but, the book also left me day dreaming about living the permaculture lifestyle in other areas like the High Desert of New Mexico and the Pacific Northwest of Oregon. This book touches on all the possibilities, from the home garden with a few animals to commercial orchards, forests, animal farms, aquaculture, urban gardens and more. But don't get me wrong, it does not cover these topics in depth, it gives a thorough introduction to these topics and an understanding that one would likely not gain by reading just one book. Also each chapter ends with a list of references for further reading. In addition there are appendices listing useful permaculture plants, such as nitrogen fixing plants. One appendix even breaks it down into useful categories, such as fruit plants and trees for temperate, topical/sub-tropical and dry areas,pest control plants and finally appendices which list hundreds of the plants mentioned in the text by common, Latin, and by species names. The book ends with a glossary of key terms used in the book and few pages about Bill Mollison (One of the founders of permaculture) and the permaculture institute including info on their 72 hour PC Design Certificate Course. This book is highly recommended!

If one were to have only a single book from which to learn the method, this is it! Once you comprehend the principles outlined here, you can obtain any other specific information you need online. Although I recommend "Edible Forest Gardens, Vol. 2" as a perfect companion for "Intro to Permaculture".
  • Tar
This is a recommended book for a permaculture class I'm taking. Written by the founder of permaculture, it's not nearly as in-depth as the Designers Manual but it's a great place to start if you're curious about the root concepts and don't want to spend an arm & a leg to get started.
  • Jare
Awesome intro! The Designers manual is far more in depth but if you cant afford it, this one is definitely a great buy.
This is an excellent introduction to the whole idea of permaculture. It is primarily focused on the design/placement of structures for a house/yard, farm/fields/forests, & a village set-up to accomplish the goals of reducing work & pollution.
