Graham Bell is the former editor of Permaculture News. He worked for the Princes Trust and is now a freelance environmental consultant. He lives and works in the Scottish Borders, and is married with two children.
The Permaculture Garden is an excellent book about actually putting it all into practice in your back garden. It contains excellent species lists for useful plants for a wide range of situations. The first chapter is a kind of philosophical treatise on why to garden, and is littered with beautiful quotes from literature about the joy of gardening. This book is crammed with useful ideas.
