The Vegetable Gardener's Guide to Permaculture: Creating an Edible Ecosystem

By Christopher Shein
With Julie Thompson
Once a fringe topic, permaculture is moving to the mainstream. Gardeners 
who are ready to take their organic gardening to the next level are 
discovering the wisdom of a simple system that emphasizes the idea that 
by taking care of the earth, the earth takes care of you.

The Vegetable Gardener's Guide to Permaculture teaches gardeners of 
every skill level — with any size space — how to live in harmony with 
both nature and neighbors to produce and share an abundant food supply 
with minimal effort. Permaculture teacher Christopher Shein highlights 
everything you need to know to start living off the land lightly, 
including how to create rich, healthy, and low-cost soil; blend a 
functional food garden and decorative landscape; share the bounty with 
others; and much more.

This inspiring, easy-to-follow, information-packed, practical guide will 
help you transform your garden into a food forest that feeds you for 
years to come.

Christopher Shein has started dozens of community, school, and market 
gardens. He teaches permaculture at Merritt Community College where he 
helped develop the award-winning student farm. Shein also owns Wildheart 
Gardens, a permaculture landscape business that designs and builds 
sustainable gardens.
