Hitching for Hope and The Regenerative Grower’s Guide to Garden Amendments 

Hitchhiking across Ireland. Concocting homemade garden amendments. I love that both topics have a home at Chelsea Green.

Join Ruairí McKiernan on a timely adventure in Hitching for Hope, the story of his journey around an Ireland beset by the all-too-familiar struggles of modernity. Ruairí delivers a message both profound and difficult: When we really listen to others—open our hearts and receive their experiences—we can transcend some of the partisan nonsense and locate a common thread of humanity.

Equally profound, and notably less difficult thanks to Nigel Palmer’s brilliant instruction, are the recipes you’ll find in The Regenerative Grower’s Guide to Garden Amendments. These recipes are revolutionary in their nod to the oft-overlooked complexity of the plant-soil relationship.

While the powers that be are too often engaged in a relentless assault on life, our kitchens, gardens, homes, and communities are powerful sites of regeneration and resilience.

With books as in life, it takes all kinds.
