How can we cultivate everyday habits that help create more justice, more biodiversity, and more of the the world we want - amidst our everyday life, with our everyday choices?

How can we create more meaning in our daily life, in a way that actually makes a difference, in this time of urgent and overlapping crises?

What if your habits could create a more meaningful life for you AND a better world?

The Milkwood Permaculture Living Handbook is your guide to improving your home, health and happiness – and the planet – one simple step at a time. Packed with practical skills and projects, its regenerative living for busy people who want to make a positive impact in a world out of balance.

Discover how simple changes to your every day can make a big difference. Maybe it's decluttering your home, growing sprouts on your windowsill, connecting with your community or taking on a locavore mini-challenge. Maybe it's going waste-free or falling in love with compost. Inspired by the life-affirming principles of permaculture, all 60 habits will help you reconnect with your ecosystem, save money and celebrate sustainable living.

Wherever you start, this book will help you change your lifestyle in small but significant ways – one powerful, practical habit at a time – towards a resilient, abundant life and a hopeful future for all.

'This book is all about a passion for sharing skills, igniting the can-do, cultivating the possible, calming the chaos, delivering the doable. And, above all else, connecting and caring for the community. It's a home, a safe place to come and grow hope in what is a challenging world.'
~ Costa Georgiadis

'Overflowing with information for our times - one of the best permaculture books ever!'
~ Hannah Moloney

'Kirsten Bradley shows us that it is never one big action, but rather a life of small, intentional, daily actions that truly make a difference. This is how we empower ourselves, our families and our communities to create a world in which we want to live.'
~Paul West, River Cottage Australia

'The time is right for this volume and it is very welcome.'
~ Rosemary Morrow, permaculture elder

'As author and activist, Kirsten Bradley walks her talk applying the deep and ethical thinking behind permaculture to everyday habits that she and her family have tested and documented through the very successful Milkwood Permaculture Living Course. This book distils the lessons learnt from helping so many others make positive changes in their own lives. In the process it is an accessible introduction to permaculture as powerful thinking tools for regeneration and resilience.'
~ Dr David Holmgren, co-originator of permaculture
