New Spring Arrivals

New books are popping up like bright green crocus stalks through the thawing ground these days. We have no less than eight new titles available this week!

Permaculture enthusiasts will delight in the release of Sepp Holzer’s Permaculture, which details this Austrian farmer’s renowned methods for edible landscaping, pond construction, mushroom cultivation, shelter building, and more. Holzer farms steep mountainsides in Austria 1,500 meters above sea level, and his farm is an intricate network of terraces, raised beds, ponds, waterways and tracks, well covered with productive fruit trees and other vegetation. In this book, Holzer shares the skill and knowledge acquired over his lifetime, covering every aspect of his farming methods – not just how to create a holistic system on the farm itself, but how to make a living from it.

For the activists out there, Bruce Levine’s brand new Get Up, Stand Up and environmental hero Diane Wilson’s latest, Diary of an Eco-Outlaw, provide inspiration and energy for tackling the important issues that you’re passionate about.
