Having a resources like the Tropical Permaculture Guidebook for my work, for example with a women’s self-help group in Kenya, to be able to share the illustrations, the examples, the experience, the material that has been tested over and over is going to be absolutely invaluable.

The Tropical Permaculture Guidebook provided the backbone of our recent Permaculture Design Course in Timor-Leste. The book is an essential collection of tropical permaculture principles filled with traditional and modern wisdoms. The importance of this book for anyone practicing permaculture in the tropics can not be overestimated.
