The last year was one of the hottest ever recorded. Temperatures are on the rise at a fast pace, putting the future of our planet at risk. Do you want to do your bit to help?

You've seen on the news about how humans are destroying the planet, about how if we don't act soon, the effects of global warming will be irreversible. According to the Consultative group on International Agriculture Research, Modern agriculture is one of the biggest emitters of carbon dioxide; combined with forestry, it's responsible for up to a third of all emissions. And the cracks are starting to show; the storms more frequent and destructive and the weather more unpredictable than you remember it as a kid. You know we need to act fast and work together to tackle this.

You've cut down your use of plastic and meat consumption. But you want to do more. You care about the planet and realize that we, as humans are destroying it.

What more can you do to help?

As famous permaculturist Bill Mollison said "Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple."

And permaculture goes a long way towards this; it's a way to use natural systems and processes to help you get the most from your garden in the most efficient way possible with nature doing most of the watering, fertilizing and pest control for you.

Whether you're an apartment dweller or the proud owner of a large piece of land, permaculture principles can help you get the best out of your garden.

Permaculture isn't just about personal satisfaction, though. It's also about helping to save the planet. Even if you're only able to grow your own tomatoes and strawberries this summer, you're cutting your carbon footprint - no transport, no logistics, no fertilizers or pesticides, just your own 100% organic fruit and vegetables.

Learning about permaculture and incorporating it into your life will help you realize your dream of living a sustainable life and doing that extra bit to help the future of the planet.

In 'Creating your Permaculture Heaven', you'll learn:

- The main principles of permaculture;

- How to make use of every bit of water that is given to us;

- Why humans wouldn't exist without soil and how we can provide it with the nutrients it needs to grow all our delicious fruit & veg;

- How to keep those pesty slugs away from your lovely green vegetables;

- Which plants work well together and which hate the sight of each other;

- How you can realize your dream of having your own food forest with your favorite fruit & veggies

- How you can reap even more rewards from your garden to give you a little extra pocket money;

- How to attract bees to your garden or even make honey

And much more.....

As a free bonus, there are some fun exercises for you at the end of each chapter to help you put what you have learnt into practice

You may think you don't have the time or the money to start a big permaculture project. But permaculture doesn't need to be overwhelming. You can start as small as you like and you can move at a pace that suits you. Don't feel you have to learn everything in one go and rush out to transform a whole wilderness in a year. Just deal in manageable chunks and you'll do just fine.
