Last minute gifts: Permanent Pubs (books)
Established in 1990, Permanent Publications publish inspiring, practical information that encourages people to live more healthy, self-reliant and ecologically sound ways of life. They produce the world’s most innovative range of permaculture books, including titles which instruct on: sustainability, practical solutions for the home, garden & community, education, politics, economy, woodlands, food and cooking, and people. Recent highlights include Maddy Harland's new book Fertile Edges, Tom Henfrey and Gil Penha-Lopes' Resilience, Community Action and Societal Transformation (that's Gil leaping across the cover) and Tomas Remiarz's Forest Gardening in Practice. They've also just published Patrick Whitefields' Minimalist Gardener. If there isn't something amongst that little lot to delight your friends, maybe you need some new ones in the New Year.
