To ensure food security and restore the health of the planet, we need to move beyond industrial agriculture and return to the practice of small-scale, local farming. Bioshelter Market Garden: A Permaculture Farm describes the creation of a sustainable food system through a detailed case study of the successful year-round organic market garden and permaculture design at Pennsylvania's Three Sisters Farm.

At the heart of Three Sisters is its bioshelter a solar greenhouse that integrates growing facilities, poultry housing, a potting room, storage, kitchen facilities, compost bins, a reference library, and classroom area. Bioshelter Market Garden examines how the bioshelter promotes greater biodiversity and is an energy-efficient method of extending crop production through Pennsylvania's cold winter months.

Both visionary and practical, this fully illustrated book contains a wealth of information on the application of permaculture principles. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Design and management of an intensive market garden farm
  • Energy systems and biothermal resources
  • Ecological soil management and pest control
  • Wetlands usage
  • Solar greenhouse design and management

Whatever your gardening experience and ambitions, this comprehensive manual is sure to inform and inspire.
