I read about this new book on the Permaculture Market Garden. From the reviews I got the impression this could be a good book to read. 
I am not gardening for the market. I have my own garden for my own food, I am a volunteer in the permaculture community garden project in my neighbourhood, and I have 'future plans' for permaculture experiments in a different country (see the tropical climate regional forum). In the last case 'the market' can be part of the plan, maybe.
But in general I am not a person who sells products ...  ... I think this new book could still be very interesting. Methods and techniques for market gardens can be very useful in other gardens too, don't you think?

Hi,

Yes, this book is good for non-commercial production.  It talks about the process of visioning, development and design of efficient permaculture garden systems.  Home gardeners need to grow this way so they can free themselves from a disorganised and less profitable permaculture production and move to more profitable techniques that free their time, wallet and mind as well as benefit the ecology of the land and the community around it.
