This book is great, one of my favorites of all permaculture books. I'm working with a very different climate and land pattern than he is so many of the specifics of our situations are very different, but there's still so much that can be learned from someone who's doing this sort of work anywhere. Falk may not have the decades of experience that sepp holzer does, but IMO he's a better writer than Holzer. Falk explains everything thoroughly while Holzer often doesn't go into enough detail for me to really understand what he's getting at. The other thing I love about Falk's book is that he isn't afraid to talk about the mistakes that he's made too and what he's learned from them. Quite a resource for permaculturalists.
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
