David Holmgren builds on the success of the permaculture concept and the global permaculture movement, to provide a more cerebral and controversial contribution to the sustainability debate. This brings into focus the powerful and still evolving permaculture concept he pioneered with Bill Mollison in the 1970's.
It draws together and integrates 25 years of thinking and teaching to show a whole new way of understanding and action behind a simple set of design principles. This provides refreshing perspectives on a range of environmental issues and shows how permaculture is much more than a system of gardening.

"For anyone seriously interested in understanding the foundations for sustainable design and culture, this is essential reading. I owe this book the most profound debt of gratitude. It is the book which first suggested what a collective response to peak oil and climate change rooted in permaculture design principles might look like in practice.
The breadth of what Holmgren does in this book still blows me away. Read it slowly, digest it well, discuss it with anyone who will listen like all life-changing experiences it is best savoured, as you will thereafter think of your life in two halves, before you read Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability and after. I do not hesitate to refer to it as a work of great genius."
Rob Hopkins, co-founder of the Transition Movement"
