I give this book 8 out of 10 acorns.

As Bill Mollison says in the foreword, authors share in this book their experience and knowledge with a series of activities and projects, each linked to a basic principle of permaculture. Each of 50 DIY topics starts with specific instructions on how to build a feature from recycled materials, and ends with explanation of permaculture perspective this particular topic fits in. Building with tyres, plastic bottles reuse, organic pest control and fertilisers, cold frames, geodesic dome, haybox cookers and propagating plants - a wide range of activities which this small book covers is impressive. A great source of ideas for personal or family projects in own backyard.
