Does anyone have any pro or con book recommendations for beginning permaculture? I've been looking around, and there is lots of stuff out there that doesn't apply to my farm. I'm north of Orlando, zone 9, all sand in the top 2 - 5 feet with some clay-sand mix down to 20+ft, slightly acidic, 1% organic matter, zero rocks. There is a gentle roll in the land, with no more than 40 ft difference between the peak and the lowest point. Due to the soil structure, there is no erosion or run off; no matter how hard or long it rains, the water runs right thru the soil, never leaving a puddle. The only pooled water is at the very lowest points where wild hogs have rooted for centuries and deposited enough muck to seal the bottom. In any farming / gardening / landscaping books, I often run into the problem of recommendations being more appropriate to the other 47 CONUS states.
I would like to start converting small sections of my farm to a permaculture design. I'm looking for books that are cover general concepts as well as specific how to info. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
