The Permaculture City: Regenerative Design for Urban, Suburban, and Town Resilience

Toby Hemenway

More than a fad or mere buzzword, permaculture offers positive solutions for many of the environmental and social challenges confronting modern society. And nowhere are those empowering remedies more needed and desired than in our cities.

In his latest book, bestselling permaculture author Toby Hemenway (Gaia’s Garden) demonstrates that the same nature-based approach that works to grow food—connecting the pieces of the landscape together in harmonious ways—applies perfectly to our need for water, shelter, energy, livelihood, and community.

As Hemenway demonstrates in The Permaculture City, urban permaculture is about much more than gardening in the city. Growing food is only a small part of the challenge we face in solving our essential and increasingly urgent problem of coexisting with a finite planet and with each other.
