Aranya has been experimenting with permaculture 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 Aranya has taught over eighty two-week design courses, many teacher trainings and a variety of other related specialist subjects. Along the way, he says, “I have met many amazing people that give me hope for the future and who in no small way have influenced the content of my Design guide”. Aranya is a long-term barefooter, certain that this helps to make him more aware of nature, stay grounded and walk lightly on the Earth.
This full colour book explains the permaculture design process and is based on worksheets from Aranya’s design courses which have been refined and tested on students over time. If you already have a basic knowledge of permaculture, either from reading another book or attending a course, then this guide is just what you need to build on your prior knowledge and put it into practical application.
