Summary

Farmer Phil seems to have it all figured out. When Eden and her father move to the country to live on a farm, they're dismayed by the rowed crops, cooped up chickens, and pest problems. Farmer Phil shows them how to work with nature to solve their problems, and together their farms thrive.

This children's book is a great way to introduce kids to the core concept of permaculture - that working with nature can provide more fruitful and sustainable solutions. Illustrated by Victor Guiza, the book is one of the only permaculture children's books in print, and even has a section at the back with noteworthy keywords, like 'swales' and 'food forest'.

Hey Destiny,

Thank you so much for the plug! I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the dailyish email today. An FYI for anyone interested in purchasing a copy for the holidays.

Last I checked, Amazon claimed they were sold out. Barnes and Noble does have copies of the hard and softcover. Barnes&Noble Farmer Phil

Also, signed print copies are available on my website, same price as Amazon. (Free shipping to lower 48, sorry no international shipping, it's crazy expensive) Link to Farmer Phil Signed Copies

Thanks again, Destiny, and everyone at permies.
Phil M. Williams

You're so welcome Phil! My son loves that book, and he's not even two. I caught him reading it to his stuffed Snoopy the other day in his room..."a forest of food!"

Made my day!
