Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist by Michael Judd
This book came out in 2013, and the subtitle is How to Have Your Yard and Eat It Too.
In this book, Michael shares his life at his Long Creek Homestead in Frederick, Maryland. Michael’s gorgeous property includes 25 acres of mixed woodland, food forests, gardens, and a nursery designed for experimentation and education.
Michael’s book is his how-to manual for following in his footsteps: transforming a sea of grass into a flourishing edible landscape that pleases the eye as well as the taste buds. With his delightful personality and quick humor, Michael explains the complexities of permaculture design into his simple do-it-yourself projects like:

  • Herb Spirals
  • Food Forests
  • Raised-Bed Gardens
  • Earthen Ovens
  • Uncommon Fruits
  • Outdoor Mushroom Cultivation, and more . . .

The book features beautiful photography and practical designs that can be easily grafted to the urban landscape's micro-habits, scaled up to the acreage of homesteads, or adapted to already flourishing landscapes.
This book is 144 pages of an edible landscaping primer with a permaculture twist to help anyone with a desire to turn their landscape into a luscious and productive edible Eden.
