Design Guide Intro
Permaculture Design - a step by step guide is a practical and portable companion to other books on the subject. While it includes the core permaculture ethics, principles and philosophies, it places them directly into the context of a design process. It provides clarity about where different tools, strategies and techniques can be most effectively applied in going from where you are now to where you'd like to be.

"While there are plenty of excellent books already written about permaculture, I hadn't found one that really explained the design process in a step-by-step fashion from start to finish. This was a gap I initially filled on my design courses with a set of worksheets, which were then tried and tested by 15 groups of design course students over 18 months, before being turned into this guide."
