Sepp Holzer’s Permaculture

Permanent Publications, East Meon, Hants.

SH farms steep mountainsides in Austria 1500 metres above sea level.  His farms are an intricate network of terraces, raised beds, ponds, waterways and tracks, well covered with productive fruit trees and other vegetation, with the farmhouse neatly nestling amongst them.  This is in dramatic contrast to his neighbours’ spruce monocultures.

In this book, Sepp Holzer shares the skill and knowledge he has acquired over his lifetime.  He covers every aspect of his farming methods, not just how to create a holistic system on the farm itself, but how to make a living from it.  He writes about everything from the overall concepts, down to the practical details.

Sepp offers a wealth of information for the gardener, smallholder and alternative farmer yet the book’s greatest value is in the attitudes it teaches.  He reveals the thinking processes based on principles found in nature that create his productive systems.  These can be applied anywhere.”
