New to Permaculture?

Whether you are new to permaculture or already know something about it, we recommend taking a little bit of time with the resources on this page in order to:

  • decide whether or not you would like to work with us to get a permaculture consultation or design done for your property or project
  • be better prepared for your permaculture design consultation (for example, understanding what sets permaculture apart from other design practices and also gaining appreciation for what is possible to achieve with permaculture design).
  • assess whether or not you would like to participate in The Resilience Hub’s permaculture events or educational programs.

Highly Recommended

Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Homescale Permaculture by Toby Hemenway [book] – This is a well-written book that makes permaculture very accessible to anyone with even the most basic of experience with gardening or design of any sort.  It covers the basic concepts of permaculture as well as examples for any property size.

Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective [film; 90 minutes] – This 2015 film is one of the best examples of visual media that helps answer the questions “What is permaculture?” and “Why should I care?”  It helps explain the complexities of permaculture design and creates a stunning visual tour of applied permaculture examples in the United States with a focus on the Northeast US.  Highly recommend.
