Permacultured Library

The library at Daruma is stocked with over 800 books either with ‘Permaculture‘ actually in the title, or books that are directly related to the topics covered in our Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Courses and Natural Building Courses.

Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual by Bill Mollison, The Permaculture Handbook by Peter Bane, Permaculture Principles & Pathways by David Holmgren, Introduction to Permaculture by Bill Mollison, You Can Have Your Permaculture And Eat It Too by Robin Clayfield, The Permaculture Earthworks Handbook, RetroSuburbia by David Holmgren and many other titles.

Other titles on the shelves range from Physics to Photography, an entire shelf of books on brewing beer, learning Thai, Mathematics, greywater, how to mind map, earthen plasters, telescopes, history, food, cooking, preserving, ecological design, composting.

There is a book, aptly titled ‘The Volume Library” which seems to be an encyclopedia of everything. And yes, it is voluminous!

A book lover interested in any of the topics concerning the creation and upkeep of Eco Villages could spend many a happy hour in here. So could beer connoiseurs, musicians, lovers of Latin, those with a fetish for Astronomical objects, and mad chem lab scientists (The Organic Chem Lab Survival Manual).

A cornucopian plethora of literature to be absorbed by, if you are not already consumed with studying your PDC or other courses during your stay.
