The Permaculture Research Handbook is
aimed at those with some knowledge of permaculture but no research
background who want to undertake a permaculture research project,
whether as diploma apprentices, undergraduates, volunteers, or just for fun. The Handbook uses the SADIMETS model of seven straightforward steps (survey, analyse,
design, implement and maintain, evaluate, tweak, and share) to guide the reader through the research process, from the first project
idea to a published final report. 7 experienced permaculture designers and researchers collaborated to produce the handbook. It is free to download.
