The long-awaited exploration of permaculture specifically for cooler Northern Hemisphere climates is finally here! Already regarded as the definitive book on the subject, The Earth Care Manual is accessible to the curious novice as much as it is essential for the knowledgeable practitioner. Permaculture started out in the 1970s as a sustainable alternative to modern agriculture, taking its inspiration from natural ecosystems. It has always placed an emphasis on gardening, but since then it has expanded to include many other aspects, from community design to energy use. It can be seen as an overall framework that puts a diversity of green ideas into perspective. Its aims are low work, high output, and genuine sustainability.

A very long time ago, before I even started out on my own, I knew nothing about the ins-and-outs of the kitchen. I grew up with my grandmother who basically taught me the kitchen. Bubby, as everyone called her, was a master in the kitchen. Bubby was able to make anything taste great! Bubby shared her love for cooking with me. Many years later, I apprenticed with a high class chef who shared with me many tips and tricks of the kitchen. Along the way, I have picked up many ideas myself. With this manual, I would like to share with you what I have learned in the "School of Hard Knocks." With this manual, you will not have to struggle as do many others do. This book will help you work a better kitchen.
