You can find The Permaculture Student 1 being used by individuals of all ages and teachers in elementary schools, high schools, and homeschools. It is a reference manual rather than a traditional textbook of units and assignments, so it is easier to use in designing. Colorful, scientifically accurate, and engaging illustrations are found throughout the pages. Written by a professional educator with years of classroom experience and curriculum design with a team of professional reviewers and editors.

The Permaculture Student 1 Workbook is a guide with recipes, formulas & diagrams to help anyone analyze, understand, and plan their own home site. Whether you need to make a topographic map, create a series of climate analogs, arrange the zones, or plot the sunpath or sun angles, this workbook will safely guide you and help you to stay on track - this is where the knowledge you acquire in the textbook is applied.
