Any library catering to homeowners and gardeners will find this a delightful approach
GAIA'S GARDEN: A GUIDE TO HOME-SCALE PERMACULTURE appears in its second updated edition to include a new chapter on urban permaculture, designed for people with limited growing space. It shows how to work with nature for better results and more forgiving gardens, and tells how to build a habitat to conserve water, give benefit to insects and birds, and grow edible 'forests' of seasonal delights. Any library catering to homeowners and gardeners will find this a delightful approach.

Create a Sustainable Garden Using Less Input and More Diversity for Better Yields.
This book is a wealth of information. It teaches how to design and grow a home garden using permaculture and ecological gardening techniques. These techniques are designed to minimize input regarding fertilizers, pesticides and time, by imitating nature. Nature shows us that many different species of plants perform better together than one species. In permaculture each plant has more than one purpose. Not only will the plant provide food, but it may also shade another plant or attract beneficial insects. In Gaia's Garden you'll learn how to implement these ideas to create your own sustainable food forest.
Wonderful book which opened my eyes to different possibilities! Even saw some examples of Huegelkultur at an outdoor farm house museum in Graz, Austria this summer, something which was described in the "Gaia's Garden" book. This mound of brush, compost, and dirt was successfully growing a variety of veggies. "Gaia's Garden" encourages innovative thinking as I begin to explore what varieties of fruiting plants are available from around the world and which may work on my particular suburban lot. Recommending this book to many of my gardening family & friends who are working on developing a healthy food production ecology in their own back yards.
Lots of gardening space saving ideas
I would highly recommend this book for the information on space and compost saving ideas.
