    Darrell Frey is the owner and manager of Three Sisters Farm, a five-acre permaculture farm, solar greenhouse and market garden located in Western Pennsylvania. Frey writes extensively on permaculture design and ecological land use planning and has been a sustainable community development consultant and permaculture teacher for 25 years.
    Bioshelter Market Garden covers everything you need to understand, build, or simply admire these important tools for sustainability. Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture

    Bioshelter Market Garden: A Permaculture Farm describes the creation of a sustainable food system through a detailed case study of the successful year-round organic market garden at Pennsylvania's Three Sisters Farm.

    Both visionary and practical, this fully illustrated book overflows with a wealth of information on the application of permaculture principles.

    At the heart of Three Sisters is its bioshelter---a solar greenhouse which integrates growing facilities, poultry housing, a potting room, storage, kitchen facilities, compost bins, a reference library and classroom area. Bioshelter Market Garden examines how a permaculture farm promotes greater biodiversity, showcasing the bioshelter as an energy-efficient method of extending crop production through Pennsylvania's cold winter months.

    Whether your goal is to enhance your own food security with a personal garden or to embark on a full-fledged small-scale farming venture, this comprehensive manual will inform and inspire.

    This well-illustrated case study, with its intertwined theory and life story will help students of permaculture, of sustainability, of earth regeneration and of integrated eco-social design---indeed all world changers. Prof. Declan Kennedy, Chairman, Advisory Board, www.
