Summary

Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist is a how-to manual for the budding gardener and experienced green thumb alike, full of creative and easy-to-follow designs that guide you to having your yard and eating it, too. Permaculture designer and avid grower Michael Judd takes the listener on a step-by-step process to transform a sea of grass into a flourishing edible landscape that pleases the eye, as well as the taste buds. With personality and humor, he translates the complexities of permaculture design into simple self-build projects, providing full details on the evolving design process, material identification, and costs. Chapters cover:

  • Herb Spirals
  • Food Forests
  • Raised-Bed Gardens
  • Earthen Ovens
  • Uncommon Fruits
  • Outdoor Mushroom Cultivation
  • And More....

The book is filled with practical designs that Judd has created and built over years of workshops, homesteading, and running an edible landscaping business. Though geared toward suburban gardeners starting from scratch, the book's designs can be easily grafted to the micro-habits of the urban landscape, scaled up to the acreage of homesteads, or adapted to already flourishing landscapes. Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist is a tool to spark and inform the imagination of anyone with a desire to turn their landscape into a luscious and productive paradise.

Easy organic gardening at its best! There has never been a better time to grow your own food and build community. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us the cracks in our food and health systems with food shortages and increasing disease issues. Fortunately, gardening helps with both. The many health benefits that come along with gardening and growing your own food are limitless, but a few key ones are:

  • builds self-esteem
  • reduces stress
  • strengthens your heart

I can't wait to get started!

This book is packed full of useful information without overwhelming you with too much detail. I feel confident to get started on starting food forests on the little space I have and even for friends and family who have more land. I also feel confident I could one day use it for large scale use.

The information is not too wordy, clear, light hearted, and encouraging. I feel like even if you have very little gardening experience, you could use this book to take you to the next level. The permaculture highlighted in this book is accessible and easy to follow, while providing resources to dive deeper into each section. I plan on buying a few copies for friends and family hoping to inspire them as much as I have been, together creating beautiful edible landscapes!

Thank you Michael Judd for this little gem.

Amazing Informative Guide for All Levels of Farmer

What an incredible book to have as a resource! The recording is relatively quick, and I had to pause often to take notes. The recording includes specific methods, measurements, tool recommendations, and inspiring ideas that will transform any plot of land, small or large.

This books provides the basics as well as advanced building blocks for regenerative, cooperative, and beautiful soil-building projects. Grow nuts! Grow fruit! Grow vegetables! The world needs more books like this. 10/10 would recommend!
