Grass, Soil, Hope

by Courtney White

Grass, Soil, Hope tackles an increasingly crucial question: What can we do about the seemingly intractable challenges of climate change, global hunger, water scarcity, environmental stress, and economic instability? Soil scientists maintain that a mere two percent increase in the carbon content of the planetís soils could offset 100 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. Is it even possible? Yes, says author Courtney White: Not just possible, but essential for the long-term health and sustainability of our environment and economy.

Edible Perennial Gardening

by Anni Kelsey

In Edible Perennial Gardening, Anni Kelsey has researched the little-known subject of edible perennials and has selected her favorite varieties. She explains how to source and propagate different vegetables, which plants will work together well in polycultures, and what you can plant in small, shady, or semi-shady beds, as well as in sunny areas. This book covers basic principles, forest gardening and natural farming, growing in polycultures, how to chose suitable leafy greens, alliums, roots, tubers, and herbs, site selection and preparation, building fertility, and low maintenance management strategies.
