The Permaculture Home Garden

AU$ 39.95

How to grow great tasting fruit and vegetables the organic way – free of pesticides and chemicals

Linda Woodrow

Inspired by her own training in permaculture, Linda Woodrow has devised a totally integrated organic system of gardening that combines science with common sense. In The Permaculture Home Garden she draws us into a warmly welcoming household where everyone shares the planting, helps to tend the hens, and relaxes after a satisfying day’s work. Step-by-step instructions and helpful diagrams make it easy to plan and plant a garden to suit your taste and space – a garden that not only looks wonderful but also yields bountiful fruit, herbs and vegetables.


Linda Woodrow studied permaculture intensively, and has written a fresh and lively book based on her wide experience. Her careful and intensive designs minimise work but allow nature to exist while encouraging natural controls. She includes personal self-management, time-and-motion studies and a variety of findings suited to our Australian climates, including the subtropical. I think Linda conveys, in detail, all the essentials for good gardening or mini-farming. There is very little derivative material, and the text has a first-hand and authentic ring to it, a feeling for soil and plants. I can only recommend this book to all home gardeners who respect good soil husbandry, nutrition and design.
