  5. Exotic Planting

    EXOTIC PLANTING

    by Christopher Lloyd. Christopher delighted and shocked some summer visitors when he replaced an 80 year old Lutyens-designed rose garden with his exotic one. He used bold combinations of palms, cut leafed sumac and arching New Zealand flax with cannas and dahlias, which were woven with verbena and annual climbers. This combination added dazzling color from June until the first frosts. His book starts with hardy structural plants, then adds exotic perennials and shrubs. He continues his garden explosion with annuals and then finishes with exotic edibles in pots. He gives generous information about these plants to encourage you to try an exotic oasis for yourself.

  7. Farmers of Fourty Centuries

    FARMERS OF FORTY CENTURIES

    By F. H. King For thousands of years, Asian farmers have cultivated the same land without exhausting the soil's fertility and supported very dense populations. In the early 1900's, F. H. King, an official of the U.S. D. A. studied organic farming methods in China, Korea and Japan firsthand. He relates his observations in this amazing book, first published in 1911. He was impressed with Asian farmers methods of conserving and utilizing natural resources. They planted intensively, often growing two to four crops per year on the same plot, and constructed elaborate canal systems for irrigation. They let nothing go to waste; fuel ash, canal mud, organic refuse and manure, were all used to build soil fertility. King also studied their reforestation methods, land reclamation, and the cultivation of diverse crops, among them rice, mulberry for silkworms, and tea. He provides wonderful descriptions of the farmers lives and the places he visited. Over 240 black and white photographs from his trips illustrate the book. An altogether fascinating glimpse of another culture, with lessons for today. Softcover 441 pp Learn More

  10. Food Not Lawns

    FOOD NOT LAWNS

    by H.C. Flores. Heather Flores has a vision - of healthy, connected communities that expand to create a healthier more connected world. It's a big vision, so where to start? Flores starts with out lawns, big or small, your own or shared space. She proposes that if we use this space to grow our own food, or even better share that food, we have begun the process toward healthier community, both physically and spiritually. To get us started, she devotes a good portion of the book towards gardening. She is a certified permaculture designer, so her gardens are designed to be low maintenance, edible ecosystems that engender ecological health. Her book is bursting with concrete ideas for attaining such systems - ecological soil building, water recycling, and much more. She also believes gardening should be low cost and has great ideas for scrounging and adapting. After the garden section, Flores pushes us to go beyond the personal to reduce our collective impact on the world by re-examining life styles and consumer choices. (Flores manages to live happily on $6,000 a year.) She offers great ideas for creating stronger community through gardening and low impact living. Softcover 334pp. Learn More

  12. Food From Small Spaces

    FRESH FOOD FROM SMALL SPACES

    by R.J. Ruppenthal. When the author says "small spaces" here, he's talking "square inch" city gardening. Ruppenthal, a longtime city gardener, claims that an urban apartment dweller can grow 10-20% of their families fresh food (more with a backyard or patio) without resorting to energy intensive hydroponics or indoor greenhouses. How? First, he discusses growing vegetables in available space and light levels. He shows how to build self-watering containers, use vertical space and reflected light, cycle crops, extend the season and grow fruits and berries in containers. Other options for producing your own food are also explored. These include sprouting seeds, making yogurt, kefir, and fermented foods (culturing foods increases their nutritional value), and cultivating mushrooms (great for dark spaces or shady yards). He even discusses raising chickens for eggs and honeybees. Many cities zoning laws do in fact allow a limited number of chickens. Another section explores composting and worm beds and a final chapter offers tips for getting along during resource shortages in the city. Softcover 240pp. Learn More
