Permaculture design has been the bedrock of the growth of the worldwide ecovillages network since the mid-1990s. A well-developed set of educational programs has evolved, too, including the permaculture design foundation course. This invaluable resource brings together everything students of such courses need to know about ecovillage design. Beginning with a historical survey of the tradition of intentional community, the author covers topics ranging from community size, gardening and farming, building and technology, to economics and tools for helping communities grow and develop. Permaculture also features a number of richly-observed ecovillage case studies, with photographs alongside lots of tips for facilitators and self-study groups.
