Spanish Permaculture Beginners Guide Launched
The weekend of 5th-8th May saw the launch of the first Spanish
language permaculture publication, 'Permacultura – Una Guia para
Principiantes' at the annual Biocultura Fair held in Barcelona. The

LETS systems, community building projects and farms. The translation

of the book were also sold at the Permaculture stall at the fair.
'Permaculture a Beginners Guide' has also been translated into
Croatian, Hebrew and Belgian and Hungarian editions are in the works.
