Forest Gardening Spanish book

Freshly printed and on sale – the first book in Spanish (as far as we know) on forest gardening, where we have tried to collate everything you need to progress from dreaming to designing; planting to pruning. Written from direct practical experience, and with a focus on issues which affect Mediterranean climates. We hope you like it (and if you do not speak Spanish, there are plenty of photos and illustrations).

Available here (and many local bookshops):

News from the Czech permaculture

by Maya DiGaia

Many permaculture events have been canceled due to the pandemic restrictions, but people in Permakultura CS have been busy anyway.

The PDC by Akademie permakultury has been moved online.

The big launch of the Czech translation of Patrick Whitefield’s How to make a forest garden has at least a facebook video, the book is now available in Permakultura CS online store.

The plan for the summer is to visit new places aspiring to become Permaculture Demonstration Sites and be placed on our map.
There is also one advanced permaculture course planned for June, held in Czech.

Kompost Press

Czech permaculture world by Marie Venerová

The Czech permaculture association started a project of ethical investments at the end of 2017. People can invest as little as 10,000 CZK (391 Euro) for 2 years and get a 2 % interest yearly. That enables translation and release of information about permaculture through a publishing enterprise conveniently called the Kompost Press. The Kompost Press has already released the following translated books:

 –  Permaculture Design Step by Step, by Aranya

– A Research Handbook, originally edited by Pippa Chapman, Rosie Sinfield and Chris Warburton Brown, which is available online and free for download.

 Two brochures in Czech, from the edition Key to Self Sufficiency

 – How to Handle Permaculture Design

 – How to live minimally –  recycling, upcycling, and conscious modesty

A fun release before the holidays was a memory game, Pexeso, a popular Czech board game. In this game you are looking for 2 matching pictures amongst 64 cards laid on the table – with the reverse side having identical pictures facing up. In this version, players have to seek pictures with elements you can find in a permaculture garden! One can also use the cards when designing, placing the elements, like an apple tree, on a base map… and so on.
