Rozie is assistant editor at Permaculture magazine.

I am outdoor person. I love walking, swimming in the sea and exploring woodlands. I also love to grow my own veggies, and have recently set up a community vegetable garden on the farm where I live.

Permaculture for me is about everyone and everything on this planet living in harmony. It is a positive way to live for everyone.

“While Earth has survived radical climactic changes and regenerated following mass extinctions, it’s not the destruction of Earth that we are facing, it’s the destruction of our familiar, natural world and our uniquely rich human culture.

“It may sound frightening, but the scientific evidence is that if we have not taken dramatic action within the next decade, we could face irreversible damage to the natural world and the collapse of our societies.”

This is an important book at a time where individuals and communities need to be growing more of their own food. Food forests are the best way to do this, as they create layers of edible, medicinal and useful plants, in a polyculture that works together but also looks and feels beautiful. This makes them suitable for parks, community and school gardens, and because they can be grown on different scales – even people with small gardens or allotments can implement them.

Utopia for Realists opens your eyes and mind to a different way of thinking.

We are fed up with the current status quo and with a capitalist system that cannot be changed. But Rutger Bregman shows that these systems can change. And do. Utopia can happen. The examples in this book provide hope that our current systems can be changed.

Rutger addresses various topics, from ending poverty, immigration and the creation of GDP, through to a 15-hour work week and basic income.

Are you serious about becoming a market gardener? If yes, then this is the book for you.

It is not for the faint-hearted. The Permaculture Market Garden is an incredibly indepth guide, explaining the science behind nature and farming, and combining it with our need for ecological and permaculture farming, to save the planet and people.

I've visited RHS Hampton Court Flower Show several times now.

I love to see what the current trends are in colour schemes, what the popular plants are and also what the themes are for the concept gardens.

But my main focus every year, is to see if any of these award winning designers are acknowledging the effects climate change, the changes in temperatures, the limits to land for food and the need for everyone to be growing food.

I'm quite often disappointed.
