Sepp Holzer's Permaculture
Sepp Holzer farms steep mountainsides in Austria 1,500 meters above sea level. In this book, Holzer shares the skill and knowledge acquired over his lifetime, covering every aspect of his farming methods; not just how to create a holistic system on the farm itself, but how to make a living from it. Holzer writes about everything from the overall concepts, down to the practical details. Yet the book's greatest value is the attitudes it teaches. He reveals the thinking processes based on principles found in nature that create his productive systems, principles that can be applied anywhere. Includes a chapter on mushroom cultivation. 256 pages, softcover.
