Urban gardeners. Native seed-saving collectives. Ecovillage developments. What is the connection between these seemingly disparate groups? The ecological design system of permaculture is the common thread that weaves them into a powerful, potentially revolutionary-or reevolutionary-movement.

Reviews

"The most significant discovery of the space age is that we humans are, first and foremost, indigenous Earthlings. Sustainable Revolution is a profound reminder of what this means.... By detailing local applications of eternally regenerative design principles, it eloquently demonstrates the inspiring possibilities--and critical importance--of synchronizing with the highly evolved patterns emerging from our home planet's cycles of life."--David McConville, chairman of the Buckminster Fuller Institute

"In today's sped-up, hyper-individualized, consumer-frenzied society, it's hard not to feel off-kilter. Birnbaum and Fox's book is the perfect medicine for the moment, offering guidance and inspiration to reclaim and repair our relationship with ourselves, our community and the planet."--Annie Leonard, founder of the Story of Stuff Project "Our culture has been at war with the world for millennia, wresting our food from it as if it were an enemy to be conquered.... Permaculture isn't just another way of growing food, it's a culture different from ours, a culture making peace with the world in every way. See it at work in this book. You'll be astonished. I was."--Daniel Quinn, author of Ishmael
