Description

Around the globe most people get their calories from annual agriculture - plants that grow fast for one season, produce lots of seeds, then die. Every single human society that has relied on annual crops for staple foods has collapsed. Restoration Agriculture explains how we can have all of the benefits of natural, perennial ecosystems and create agricultural systems that imitate nature in form and function while still providing for our food, building, fuel and many other needs - in your own backyard, farm or ranch. This book, based on real-world practices, presents an alternative to the agriculture system of eradication and offers exciting hope for our future.

Our customer reviews

A beautifully written, inspirational book. The author speaks from his own experience which is further informed by his ecological and engineering training which has given him extra insights into this field. A truly wonderful book which goes to the heart of cause and effect and shares his own practical knowledge, making a strong case for non-tillage, perennial agriculture over our present concentration on annual cropping. Having transformed a barren overgrazed and over cropped property in western Wisconsin into a richly productive polyculture, the author shares his knowledge on rotational livestock management, bee keeping, soil and water management, plant breeding and more. Very readable and enjoyable for the lay person as well as those already committed to permaculture.show more
