The first edition of Gaia’s Garden sparked the imagination of America’s home gardeners, introducing permaculture’s central message: Working with Nature, not against her, results in more beautiful, abundant, and forgiving gardens. As Toby Hemenway demonstrates, it’s satisfying and easy to create a backyard ecosystem by assembling communities of plants that can work cooperatively and perform a variety of functions.
Gaia’s Garden has been the best-selling permaculture book in the world for the last 7 years. The enlarged, updated 2nd edition is the winner of the 2011 Nautilus Gold Medal Award. Click here to read more!
Gaia’s Garden was named one of the top ten gardening books of 2009 by The Washington Post.
“Permaculture gardens are no longer a thing of the future. They are here to stay and flourish. Gaia’s Garden is enlightening and required reading for all people who desire to make their home’s landscape healthy, sustainable, and healing.”
—Robert Kourik, publisher and author of Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape—Naturally.
