In The Regenerative Garden, discover 80 projects that put you and your garden in-sync with nature, which leads to reduced maintenance and a wiser use of resources, and results in a garden that practically cares for itself.

Discover how to work with nature, instead of against it, by employing permaculture techniques to create a garden that is not just more beautiful and productive, but also more resilient.

While the word permaculture might sound intimidating, the principals behind it are not. The main goal of permaculture is to turn your space into a functioning ecosystem that's less reliant on external resources and better able to sustain itself through many seasons of growth and change as it resists pests, diseases, and climate extremes. Whatever the size of your space, from a tiny patio garden to a big backyard, and whether you grow food, flowers, shrubs, trees, or a combination of all, The Regenerative Garden is here to help you become a better, more eco-conscious gardener.

Through 80 DIY projects, author Stephanie Rose of the popular website Garden Therapy introduces you to basic backyard permaculture concepts in an easy-to-follow, logical way. Each of the six chapters represents a living element of the garden, capable of playing a valuable role in its constant regeneration, including soil, water, plants, climate, ethics, and community. As you check these projects off your to-do list, you'll find you've reduced your long-term work load, conserved water and other resources, turned your yard into a habitat for wildlife, and learned to grow perennial foods in creative ways.

The 80 featured projects include step-by-step instructions on how to:

  • Employ intensive planting to reduce weeding and watering chores
  • Use living mulches to amend the soil
  • Build self-watering planters and wicking beds to reduce water use
  • Install a rain garden to catch runoff
  • Plant a wildlife hedge to support creatures and create a windbreak and noise buffer
  • Compost projects and systems to repurpose waste on-site
  • Make a butterfly migration station to support pollinators of all sorts

A healthy, organic, regenerative garden is a perfect example of a self-sustaining ecosystem; everything works in tandem, is intricately connected, and comes full circle to create its own never-ending cycle of life.

    The Regenerative Garden provides an inspiring blueprint (or greenprint!) for helping gardeners map out realistic steps to take in their own garden. The 'good, better, and even better' scale provides actionable ways to make a difference immediately--and long-term objectives to strive for over time. I can't wait to introduce some of these projects into my garden as I work on my own regenerative space."-- Tara Nolan, best-selling author of Raised Bed Revolution and Gardening Your Front Yard, and co-owner

    Review Quotes:
    "Stephanie Rose is a master weaver, connecting ourselves back into a relationship with our living world. She is one of the most committed spirits I have ever met, and The Regenerative Garden expresses her love and understanding of Nature. This book invites us to re-create ancient systems and proposes including ourselves back into the regenerative process of Mother Earth, to consider the plants as our teachers, and consequently emulate nature in our daily lives. It is an invitation to collaborate, discover our compassion, and to be generous to all that exists. We have a responsibility to practice the exchange of reciprocity and to respect our living world. My deep respect to those who dare to follow these instructions. Chi-miigwech / thank you, Stephanie, for reweaving us back to the right relationship and witness what lives with us. Deep gratitude for your commitment to lead the way."-- Lori Snyder, Métis Herbalist and educator of wild, edible, & medicinal plants at Earth Awareness Rea
