THE PERMACULTURE LIBRARY
The library at Daruma Eco Village features an extensive, eclectic selection of all the books you might need to, well, build an Eco Village and many other things. 816 Titles at the time of writing, plus hundreds of other digital Titles, out of print magazines, catalogues and newsletters.
Permaculture Book Reviews: Although our time is very much occupied during a Permaculture Design Course at Daruma, we do try to pack in as much as possible. A thorough review of the literature, is one of the things that is of course well outside the scope of a PDC. We do, however, have a physical Library on-site with over 1,000 books covering all the many fields that you could think of within any of the Permaculture Domains of Action.
So, an ‘optional activity’ is for Students to carry out a brief review of a book that informs or underpins permaculture thinking. This can be a book a student chooses individually, or that has been suggested to them by the Daruma team. You can see these permaculture book reviews here.
