It takes a teacher to teach. There are many permaculturists, and practitioners that write and teach YET not all of them are writers and teachers. Here’s where Matt Powers shine. He’s a¬†teacher. A performer. A seed saver, and all round exceptional human. And he saw the need as many others have to have a READABLE permaculture book that helps to explain concepts and strategies at an elementary level without devolving into a children’s book (which he’s written as well). The Permaculture Student 2 compiles a host of solutions digested into their most simple forms and presented in this incredible book.
