The Sustainable Solution Series now has grown to six ebooks. The series is practical-based, with many recipes, DIY and tips. The booklets were first published in Brazil at the Ecocentro IPEC, a living and learning community that incorporates alternatives of appropriate technologies and living systems. The centre presents practical solutions with more than 8.500 square metres of ecological buildings, composting toilets, biological wastewater treatment, ecological gardens, food forests, syntropic forests and renewable energy systems.

The Series

The series of booklets sold more than 6,000 books, reflecting the need for clear and concise information about permaculture and sustainable living. The success of the booklets encouraged us to create ebooks to support a paper-free ethos.

The ebooks support the permaculture enthusiast, with topics found in most permaculture design courses.
