With decades of hands-on teaching experience in a wide range of settings and circumstances, Rosemary Morrow brings a lifetime of global knowledge to this completely revised and updated edition of her classic text, Earth User’s Guide to Permaculture.

This new edition also features a foreword by Indian scholar, environmental activist, food sovereignty advocate, ecofeminist and author Dr Vandana Shiva. “In this book, Rosemary Morrow shows how regenerating biodiversity is regenerating resilience,” says Dr Shiva.

From its origins in Australia, to now being a global movement, permaculture has provided an ethical and environmental design framework for personal and household self-reliance, rural resettlement and community development. Earth Restorer’s Guide to Permaculture covers practical permaculture essentials such as soils, water, microclimates, trees, seeds, design, pattern literacy, pests and weeds. It has new chapters on marine permaculture, crowded margins (including refugee camps), emerging economic models, livelihoods, and patterns in nature and their design applications. The book shows us that by working in our local patch we can help restore our global ecosystems.

In addition to homeowners, it is especially useful for planners and community designers and is a valuable primary text for teachers of Permaculture Design Courses.

2021 marked the start of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration; a critical period for preventing, halting and reversing the degradation of ecosystems around the world. In recognition, Earth Restorer’s Guide to Permaculture equips readers with the tools, and 40-years of evidence-based permaculture practice, to lead the movement by empowering us to launch a new restorative relationship with all life.
