Permanent Publications  

This first dedicated book on Peoplecare explores how to use permaculture to restore personal, social and planetary well-being.

This is the first book to explore how to use permaculture design and principles for people, to restore personal, social and planetary well-being. People and Permaculture widens the definition of permaculture from being mostly about land based systems to taking it right into the heart of our own lives, relationships and society. It is for anyone who thought permaculture wasn’t for them because they didn’t have a garden. It is for anyone who wants to improve their ability to care for themselves, their friends and family and for the Earth.

People and Permaculture transforms the context of permaculture making it relevant to everyone. It covers tools and techniques we can use in our own lives, investigates ways of creating harmony in our relationships and groups, and forges a wider vision for our social systems. It further explores how to expand our feelings of connection across the globe and finally focuses on how we can manifest a positive future with the use of a new design framework specifically created for people-based designs.

Part 1 - contains a detailed introduction to permaculture design and principles as applied to people.

Part 2 - looks at the tools and techniques we can use in our own lives; how we can transform our internal landscape, enhance our well-being and be at our best.

Part 3 - investigates ways of creating harmony in our relationships and groups, through our communication and decision making.

Part 4 - explores a wider vision for our social systems, in particular health and education.

Part 5 - moves on to explore how to expand our feelings of connection across the globe.

Part 6 - focuses on how we can manifest a positive future with the use of a new design framework specifically created for people-based designs.

Full of stories, interviews and personal anecdotes from permaculture people and beyond and with over 50 practical activities, readers are empowered and given practical tools to initiate positive change in their lives. People & Permaculture is a practical and holistic guide to creating a sustainable world.
