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. Many people mistakenly think that ecological gardening--which involves growing a wide range of edible and other useful plants--can take place only on a large, multiacre scale. As Hemenway demonstrates, it's fun and easy to create a "backyard ecosystem" by assembling communities of plants that can work cooperatively and perform a variety of functions, including: Building and maintaining soil fertility and structure Catching and conserving water in the landscape Providing habitat for beneficial insects, birds, and animals Growing an edible "forest" that yields seasonal fruits, nuts, and other foods This revised and updated edition also features a new chapter on urban permaculture, designed especially for people in cities and suburbs who have very limited growing space. Whatever size yard or garden you have to work with, you can apply basic permaculture principles to make it more diverse, more natural, more productive, and more beautiful. Best of all, once it's established, an ecological garden will reduce or eliminate most of the backbreaking work that's needed to maintain the typical lawn and garden.… (más)

My first permaculture book and still probably my favorite. Lots of practical information about designing gardens and landscapes, and good case studies, too. Hemenway is preparing a new edition that should be even better, but until then... ( )

Gaia’s Garden was inspirational! It got me excited about moving things around in my yard this year. We have two “traditional” row-style vegetable plots, and we will be trying no-till on one to begin with. We just planted a cherry tree a year ago and will implement the apple guild recommendations and see how it goes. It convinced us to save three different trees we were going to cut, so I can experiment with setting up guilds with them. Also gave me some good advice on a hedge row we have been musing on. I guess that is why it is valuable. It is inspiration but also gives you practical advice on how to put move your inspiration into reality. It also gives examples of diverse permaculture gardens put in place throughout the country, and why they work, which adds fuel to your ideas on how it can work in your yard.
However, I think you would be hard pressed to convince traditional-minded people that their yard needs to become a forest garden, whether it be the trees, or the eventuality of only perennial foods. I do not want one or two tomato plants under my walnut tree. I want tomato plants enough to be able to can all the tomato sauce I need to get my family through the winter in spaghetti and lasagna! I live in Zone 5, so a long cold winter is inevitable, and we cannot just eat toast and jelly with jelly I made from my fruit, or cherry pies. I need annual vegetables, in quantity for my growing children. Though to be fair, I am sure Hemenway would just say, find a way to add beds in a sustainable way! The book is nice because it is not dogmatic. We can have our trees and eat our tomatoes too. It also encourages a regenerative mindset of putting in and improving rather than taking away. This is something that should be more and more important to gardeners. At the same time, he makes the point (gently and without fanfare) near the end of the book that if you have to use a non-renewable resource once to get your regenerative garden into place, it’s probably worth it for the outcome in the long-run. Food grown at home, even if it is sprayed with a pesticide once a year, is still better than food from factory farms. ( )

Basically a permaculture textbook. Great info, readable, annotated with quality illustrations and photos. Highly recommended. ( )

This is perhaps the best text I've read yet on permaculture gardening, and is very strong at tree guilds and edible landscape design. ( )
