Principles & Pathways Beyond Sustainability
by David Holmgren

The 12 design principles are each represented by a positive action statement, an icon and a traditional proverb or two that captures the essence of each principle. Holmgren draws a correlation between every aspect of how we organize our lives, communities and landscapes and our ability to creatively adapt to the ecological realities that shape human destiny.

For students and teachers of Permaculture this book provides something more fundamental and distilled than Mollison’s encyclopedic “Designers Manual.”

For the general reader it provides refreshing perspectives on a range of environmental issues and shows how permaculture is much more than just a system of gardening.

For anyone seriously interested in understanding the foundations of sustainable design and culture, this book is essential reading. Although a book of ideas, the big picture is repeatedly grounded by reference to Holmgren’s own place, Melliodora, and other practical examples.
