Permaculture is more than just the latest buzzword; it offers positive solutions for many of the environmental and social challenges confronting us, even in our cities. This book provides a new way of thinking about urban living, with practical examples for creating abundant resources, close-knit communities, local and meaningful livelihoods, and sustainable policies in our cities and towns. The same nature-based approach that works so beautifully for growing food—connecting the pieces of the landscape together in harmonious ways—applies perfectly to many of our other community needs. Toby Hemenway, one of the leading practitioners and teachers of permaculture design, illuminates a new way forward through examples of edge-pushing innovations. Readers will find new information on designing the urban home garden, rethinking our water and energy systems, and the importance of placemaking and an empowered community.
