Food Not Lawns (2006)
by Heather Jo Flores 

“Food not Lawns” is a movement of urban permaculture, but much more than that a movement of recreating living neighbourhoods, gift economy and edible cities. It has sprung from the book with the same title by Heather Jo Flores. She gives both background knowledge about the current conditions in society, and basics of permaculture, and a lot of practical tips how to engage in community work through Permaculture.
