I read it earlier this year, and didn’t find too much of use to me. if you’re thinking of making a bioshelter, then it may be useful, but I would agree. As small farmers look for ways to cut costs and increase their profit margins, they focus more attention on the energy used on the farm. Whether.

Personally, I think this book doesn’t go into enough detail to rival a good resource like the ones by Sepp Holzer or Bill Mollison. That doesn’t mean this is a bad book. It seems to be a good resource for bioshelters, but then again I am not ready to build a bioshelter so my opinion isn’t particularly great in that regard.
Apr 25, Crystal rated it really liked it Shelves: Technical read for the more advanced permaculturist. Jan 25, Stephie Yarden Rexroth rated it bioshelted was amazing. Nature is manifest as patterns: Nature gathers and scatters, random chaos leads to new order, new order to chaos. Each ecosystem is nested in larger systems. The great diversity of life is, at its base, simply variations on the patterns set by the ladder-bonded double helix of DNA.
On the farm, interlocking patterns of daily routines, seasonal change, and ecological interactions define our world.

Much of good marlet design is working with these patterns in order to increase both the productivity and stability of the farm ecosystem. The patterns of our days and seasons and the pace of our lives make or break the success of the permaculture farm. Our original habitat, the savannah, gave us access to the resources of mrket grassland and the fruits and shelter of the forest. The permaculture landscape can mar,et the savannah, providing us with a mix of trees, shrubs, pastures and cropland to forage and tend.
When spring peepers sing their spring song, it is time to prepare the beds to plant peas, spinach and onions. We try to be sensitive biosuelter the spring fluctuations and cycles of the place.
We are trying to develop the native language that is lost to many modern farmers. Eventually the need to ‘design’ is superseded by a cultural knowledge garen the land and resources. We must begin somewhere. Humility as to our own ignorance of nature’s complexity will lead to the true permaculture farm. As a new traditional wisdom replaces design, we can find our way back to a deep knowing of the place as Indigenous cultures. The interweaving of the gardener’s spirit, bioshleter soil’s fertility, and the garden’s unique characteristics manifests as a new tapestry each year.
A garden landscape often tells the tale of a gardener’s journey. Stewardship begins in our yards and gardens, and it extends to the choices we make in what we consume. My childhood memories of walking the nearly dry bed of Glade Run, picking mulberries and raspberries while the hummingbirds and honeybees foraged the orange blossoms of the jewelweed, is also a vision I have for urban children today.
Parks, garden lots and other green spaces in a permanent culture will provide wild places for children drawn to foraging—place where they can endure thorn-scratched arms and legs and biosheltr fingers and lips in exchange for eating their fill of abundant blackberries. We must begin to forge a new myth that allows humans to be redeemed in the eyes of creation or manifest universe, as you will and regain our place in the garden of our own design.
Feb 25, Katie rated it really liked it Shelves: My only complaint is markeg I think I would restructure the book a bit.
Some of it just didn’t gardden sense until later in the book when another piece fit into place. I might also include some more diagrams, charts and pictures that better illustrate the points being made. Overall, very helpful and worth keeping to re-read!
