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!

Permaculture looks so interesting and now we have some acres, it would be fun and rewarding to make a real permaculture garden at home.

For taste, for savings, for chemical free produce and most of all for satisfaction watching it all develop and grow, permaculture is the way to go!

I try to grow most of our own vegies. I believe in getting benefits from my yard instead of just having the green grass. i wonder how many fruit trees would fit in my space?

I'd LOVE to give this to my dad. He's a volunteer on a park committee, and while he's no greenie, his connection to greenery really hsd brought out his suppressed inner-environmentalist. If I gave him this, he'd be quoting it for months, I bet!

More city folks should be growing their own food. There's nothing like the sweet taste of your own veggies.

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!
