The Nourishing Homestead

by Ben Hewitt

The Nourishing Homestead tells the story of how we can create truly satisfying, permanent, nourished relationships to the land, nature, and one another.

The Hewitts offer practical ways to grow nutrient-dense food on a small plot of land, and think about your farm, homestead, or home as an ecosystem. Much of what the Hewitts have come to understand and embrace about their lives of deep nourishment is informed by their particular piece of land and local community in northern Vermont, but what they have gleaned is readily transferable to any place—whether you live on 4 acres, 40 acres, or in a 400-square-foot studio apartment.

The Tao of Vegetable Gardening

by Carol Deppe

The Tao of Vegetable Gardening, explores the practical methods as well as the deeper essence of gardening. Organized into chapters that echo fundamental Taoist concepts: Balance, Flexibility, Honoring the Essential Nature, Effortless Effort, Non-Doing, and even Non-Knowing, The Tao of Vegetable Gardening illustrates the key principles and practices that home gardeners need to know to successfully plant and grow the most popular vegetables.
