Trees are vital to life on this planet. They clean the air from pollutants, provide oxygen, create habitat and biodiversity, combat climate change through the removal and storage of carbon dioxide and so much more.

The forests across the world are essential to the health of our planet, and although only cover 6%, they contain over half of planet's animal and plant species.

In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.1

This is a life changing book. It is an essential guide for anyone seeking a happier life. The authors, Annie and Adam share their stories and ideas that have created their happy lifestyles whilst minimising spending.

Our current world encourages us to buy, buy, buy, giving the illusion this will bring happiness. But when you get down to real happiness, is it really those beautiful but expensive shoes (that you’ll only wear a few times) that make you happy, or those moments exploring your neighbourhood, meeting new people, experiencing an amazing adventure with loved ones?

This is an essential book for anyone interested in permaculture. Although permaculture originated as a land-based design framework, it is now applied to all aspects of our lives, our communities and our planet.

Zen in the Art of Permaculture Design is the philosophical layer to permaculture design. This won’t tell you how to start a permaculture garden, or how to design your permaculture project, but what it does do is use permaculture tools to guide you through your own journey, whatever that may be.
