This fully revised and updated edition contains a wealth of technical information for teaching permaculture design and includes new findings in emerging disciplines such as regenerative agriculture. The Earth User's Guide to Permaculture Teacher's Notes is of key relevance to teachers and students of architecture, landscape design, ecology and other disciplines like geography.

Review quote

Even after teaching permaculture for over a decade, I still found plenty of useful information and tips here. It is packed full of interesting technical details, which as well as being valuable in themselves, serve as thorough reminders of what to include. This is balanced with suggestions on different ways of teaching. She provides us with questions to ask our students that are thought provoking and encourage personal connection and insights. Looby Macnamara, permaculture teacher and author of People and Permaculture
