Giveaway โ€“ City Permaculture v2 book (now closed)

From keeping bees on rooftops in Melbourne’s CBD to growing food plants in a bathtub in the backyard, Earth Garden’s new book City Permaculture volume 2 is packed with ideas and inspiration for growing food in the cities.

As we’re really passionate about growing delicious and uncommon fruit trees in the ‘burbs, we’ve contributed a story about doing just that.

We’ve got a copy of this great new book to share with one of our readers. To be in the draw to win just leave a comment on this post by the end of Saturday 18 August. Due to postage costs we’re limiting entry to people in Australia only (sorry overseas readers!). Only one comment per reader please, and we’ll randomly select a winner on Sunday 19 August – so be sure to check back in then!

19 August update – Wow, fantastic to see so keen beans put their hat in the ring for this giveaway. We used a random number generator to select the winner....and it’s Jayne, who commented ‘Have recently started my little window box, inspired by a kids' craft book! I love kids' books because they make everything so simple and possible. Would love your book to guide me into the adult world of permaculture!’ Congratulations Jayne! Thanks so much to everyone for showing your enthusiasm for this book – perhaps you could request your local library order a copy, that way lots of people could enjoy it!

I have to keep reminding my husband we can do this all in the burbs and don't necessarily need that block of land (just yet...). I'd prefer to practice here on 700 m2 before we get anything bigger!

I have a old bathtub under my house just waiting for some ideas on how best to reuse it. Looks like a great place to find some.(:

We've tried to turn our quarter acre into a food forest with the help of our 5 chooks, the worm farm and composting everything.To date, we've managed to plant 42 fruit trees and are now just starting the vegie plot,need a lot of help to design it though.This book would really help.Thanks for the inspiration and good luck to everyone!

Love your website, and have put a reminder in my diary to watch out for Dapto's show next year. I didn't realise EG had a new book out - would be great to share around my family if I'm lucky!
