Permaculture for the Rest of Us: Abundant Living on Less than an Acre
by Jenni Blackmore, 179 pages, 6x9, softcover. This title intrigued me, as I consider myself to be among “the rest of us.” I’m not thrilled by the idea of mapping my landscape or measuring anything when it comes to planting: skip-the-directions-and-dig-in is more my style. I liked this book. It’s not stuck-up even a little bit. In fact, it’s easy to forget that the author is a certified permaculture consultant because it’s so darn practical. Blackmore has real dirt on her hands. She turned a one-acre dumpy wind-swept seaside plot in Nova Scotia into a thriving mini-farm. The writing is humble, conversational and funny. This book reads more like a novella than a manual, but you can easily skip around to the chapters you like best. The topics are extremely basic (but important!) and probably best suited to newer gardeners and could be useful to anyone taking the plunge into homesteading. -Jen Ries
