  2. 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

The solutions involve growing adaptive plants and creating sheltered havens for less hardy plants. Halpin first offers a brief geography lesson of the area covered in her book, Maine to the Carolinas. Then she discusses planning, design, structures, hardscapes, planting, care, and winterizing for seashore gardens. Then comes the fun part - garden profiles of gorgeous seashore gardens - interesting stories and gardens to lust after!
