Backyard Permaculture Projects

These six ideas are good, and easy, and probably most of us are doing them already. But I mostly posted this because of the link to the book they came from. It looks useful if you are trying to do suburban/urban permaculture. The print version is a bit pricey, $28.42 on Amazon, but the Kindle version is only $4.99.

    I love Amys website. Its has a ton of great information. Also a free mini permaculture class.

    Heres a free intro permaculture book and one more.

    Thank you for the post! The wife and I will look forward to learning and exploring the many ideas of Permaculture for our first time urban yard. We both realized we needed a plan besides just clearing overrun vines, cutting dead mini-trees and overgrown trees affecting foundation problem. We both agreed making proper usage of the space was key. Will keep you posted!

    @Carlos Clavell Welcome! This is definitely the right place to be if you are interested in growing food and medicine along permaculture lines. Good luck with your project--I've seen folks do really wonderful things with urban and suburban yards. Please do keep us posted.

    And if you are not already on Greg Peterson's mailing list, that is a good one for urban permaculture too--they offer free webinars fairly often.
