The Earth Care Manual

The Earth Care Manual - Patrick Whitefield

Patrick Whitefield has been teaching permaculture almost since it first arrived on these shores, and has a wealth and depth of experience which is almost unrivalled. He teaches widely and is recognised as one of the foremost voices articulating what permaculture might actually mean to those of us in temperate Europe. This book took him 7 years to write, and this huge input of time and energy is clear when you first get your hands on a copy - this is a big book.

Patrick begins with the principles and ethics of permaculture, and then looks in detail at the basics, the building blocks we, as permaculture designers, have to work with. These include soil, fertility, water, climate, microclimate, energy and materials, all gone into in great detail. The chapter on soils is excellent, proving that really you don’t need a degree in soil science to understand what is going on under your feet. The chapter on energy cuts to the chase, we use too much energy, and we need to use less. Once he has explored the issues and the problems, he offers us solutions, mostly ones achievable on a domestic scale.
