A few notable quotes about the book:

“In true permaculture style, this book combines empowering vision with grounded common sense, strategic thinking with nuts and bolts information.”

-David Holmgren

“With a lifetime of Permaculture immersion under his belt, Peter Bane’s contribution to domestic self-reliant security in this comprehensive handbook is nothing short of remarkable. This will empower thousands of seekers to move off the bleachers and into the game. He balances beautifully the right amount of intensive ecological information with delightful case studies and practical outworkings. A gem of a manual. Thank you, Peter.”

– Joel Salatin
