Creating Gaia’s Garden
Building Food, Energy, and Financial Security in Your Own Yard.

In this free webinar, I’ll show you how to use permaculture design to turn your yard into a super-abundant food-producing landscape that can also reduce home energy bills and even help reduce your need to earn money. These landscapes can be great carbon-sequestering wildlife habitat too. This information-packed webinar we’ll cover creating the conditions for abundance to occur in your yard and your life, designing for optimal placement and flow, all-star plants for the urban and suburban yard, managing microclimates to save energy and produce fuel, building rich soil (the foundation of health and growth), and potential income sources from your yard. You’ll also have the chance to sign up at a big discount for our online course that goes into all these subjects in much more how-to detail.

Prepare for Toby Hemenway

Gaia’s Garden is the best-selling permaculture book in the world. The enlarged, updated 2nd edition is the winner of the 2011 Nautilus Gold Medal Award.

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. This extensively revised and expanded second edition broadens the reach and depth of the permaculture approach for urban and suburban growers.

Gaia’s Garden was named one of the top ten gardening books of 2009 by The Washington Post.

Permaculture is more than just the latest buzzword; it offers positive solutions for many of the environmental and social challenges confronting us. And nowhere are those remedies more needed and desired than in our cities. The Permaculture City provides a new way of thinking about urban living, with practical examples for creating abundant food, energy security, 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 needs. Toby Hemenway, one of the leading practitioners and teachers of permaculture design, illuminates a new way forward through examples of edge-pushing innovations, along with a deeply holistic conceptual framework for our cities, towns, and suburbs.
