Permanent Publications says, "A practical workbook to apply permaculture to any project from start to finish, this is a step-by-step guide for integrating places and people, buildings and ecosystems.

Permaculture is a holistic design approach to meeting basic human needs in harmony with nature. It is a practical method for developing ecologically harmonious, ethical, human-scale productive systems.

The Permaculture Design Companion is a tried and tested process to creating a coherent, relevant and engaging design. Based on over 20 years of experience, this design guide has been used to teach over 1000 people. Many have gone on to establish thriving permaculture smallholdings; build their own natural homes and ethical businesses and create productive urban food gardens."

About the Author
Permanent Publications says "Jasmine’s permaculture journey began at Crystal Waters ecovillage in 1999, where she discovered the power of creative learning and practical solutions for the challenges of our times. Motivated by living simply and respect for nature, she and her husband Simon later built a natural home deep in the heart of a Welsh woodland, which became an internet phenomena known as the ‘hobbit house’, inspiring millions of people."

From the video description:
"In Pembrokeshire, Wales, the cutest, handmade houses have been popping up around the county. These wee homes, made of natural, locally sourced materials and scavenged bits from the surrounding countryside, embody low-impact living. What exactly does that mean? It means that the inhabitants who built these houses, like Simon and Jasmine Dale, grow and cultivate the vast majority of what they consume."

The Permaculture Design Process

From the video description:
"In this video I will give you a brief glimpse into how I approach the process of creating a permaculture landscape design.  A landscape designed with permaculture is one that is focused upon producing and abundance of food for the inhabitants of the site, wildlife included, while also building soil and fertility without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicide."

The Permaculture Principles

From the video description:
"The Permaculture Principles guide our design decisions and formulate the structure of our Permaculture system. We are using David Holmgren's 12 principle version which are used to help guide every Permaculture design."
