Aranya has been experimenting with what permaculture can do since his design course epiphany in 1996. In the years that followed he designed a collection of gardens, along with a few other non-land based designs, writing them all up to gain his Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design 2003. Since that time he's followed a teaching pathway, that now involves delivering on average ten two-week design courses a year. Along the way he's met many amazing people that give him hope for the future and who in no small way have influenced the content of this guide.

In this Book Aranya gives the reader a full breakdown of how to go about designing a permaculture system from the very beginning. Anyone thinking of designing properties for other people will find it indispensable, and I can't imagine there are many people who only want to design for themselves who wouldn't benefit from having this book by their side as they plan out their dreams and their gardens.

Nor is the design process the whole story by any means. No book is a substitute for taking the course itself. When I wrote The Earth Care Manual it was with a similar motivation to Aranya's: to provide people with all the information we don't have time to give in the brief span of a 72 hour course. But neither design tools nor information have the same value as the experience of the course, which centres on actually doing permaculture design with a group of like-minded people under the guidance of your tutor.

This is definitely NOT what I thought it would be. The only diagram/layout is the one on the cover. This book is about a lot of esoteric babble that goes off into tangents about balancing your life, and blah blah blah. I just wanted something that showed me where to put which plants to achieve a certain effect. (IE: here's a "step-by-step guide" to making a shade garden.....) yeahhhhh, THIS is not the right book for me. I will be donating it to the local library. :(

Permaculture Design by Aranya fulfills the purpose that the author intended for the book: to be a straightforward guide that you can pick up and read just the section you need or all of it. Each chapter is well-written and uses plain language anyone can grasp. The parts, chapters, sections organization of the book makes it easy to find what you're looking for, and I appreciated the many online resources provided as well.

The book is a bit of a slow read if have already read Permaculture: A Designer's Manual by Bill Mollison, and that would indicate Aranya took sufficient time to explain the basics to someone with no prior knowledge of permaculture. There is redundancy in the book, but again, this book is meant for anyone to be able to read in any order, so yeah, I think the author's objective for the book was accomplished.

I did learn some new things from this book, too, so I find my time and money was well-spent on this book.

Our friend loved the book and read it in a day! He is excited about how detailed and well laid out the information was put.
  • Rigiot
This is an excellent guide for the beginner - permaculture design can be daunting, but this talks you through each step, in a clear and humorous way, with lots of examples.
  • Άνουβις
So many permaculture books don't get specific. This book is all about prepping your design for the customer. It shows techniques, helps you manage your team and gives lots of resources.

This book should cost a lot more.
  • GoodBuyMyFriends
A good book to have on the shelf for reference ....
  • MrCat
I can not say enough about this handy small paperback (to be carried about) that this generous man put together to provide us with a "map" to the permaculture design process in a logical thoughtful manner.
This book is meant to be used out in the field and crimped up....a working tool and having taken a design course is worth every penny and more. I bought several copies and plan to share them with other...you will too.
It is top quality heavy gloss paper (FCS sustainable certified) with color photos.
Aranya provided an index to other references and even a website of his own that provides larger pictures in the book, along with much more.
One of the best Permaculture books I have (along with Peter Bane's new book, "Garden Farming for Town and Country". Buy both at the same time and also view these two on Youtube for a at home permaculture course.
I have just finished a six week introductory course in permaculture. This text is an excellent follow up to that experience. Aranya has distilled much of what I was exposed to making for a efficient reference tool. This text has served as an excellent resource as I start implementing the concepts I learned in the course.
I highly recommend it for those starting out as I did. My sense is that it would useful to experienced practitioners as well.
