Note: This is the first edition of David Holmgren's seminal work. A limited number of copies are available, now that the 2nd edition is available.


This book builds on the extraordinary success of the permaculture concept and global permaculture movement (over the last 25 years), to provide a more cerebral and controversial contribution to the sustainability debate.

David Holmgren is an ecological pioneer destined to have a major influence on permaculture’s evolution.
“If the ‘Permaculture Principles’ that David Holmgren discusses in this extremely important book were applied to all that we do, we would be well on the road to sustainability, and beyond.” Professor Stuart B Hill (Foundation Chair of the Social Ecology University of Western Sydney).

Are there ways to live within nature’s limits while providing a secure future for our children and justice for everyone? We think so. Read this book.
