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.
