The Farmers' Handbook is now online
The Permaculture Association reports that 'The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia have uploaded Chris Evan's excellent Farmers' Handbook aimed at "everyone interested in improving the well-being of small farmers",
which he developed as part of his longstanding work in Nepal. Although the information is specifically tailored for Himalayan conditions, almost everyone will find some useful ideas and information.
The whole handbook is available to download from,
and consists of 50 chapters in 5 volumes complete with colour photos and illustrations'.
