Thank You for being part of the Chelsea Green Community!

At Chelsea Green we take a broad, indeed worldwide perspective, publishing authors from many countries and disseminating their ideas. Just as importantly, we are bringing some of the best American writers and thinkers to the world.

The ideas we publish build bridges, not walls. They build and expand communities instead of separating and segregating them.

Regenerate the Earth. Restore the Human Spirit. It’s a tall order, to be sure. But great books, the vehicles for great ideas, have the power to inspire us and cause us to do just that.

New Release!
Uncultivated: Wild Apples, Real Cider, and the
Complicated Art of Making a Living


A New York cidery turns to wild trees and forgotten methods to create the cider of America’s past. Steering away from “business as usual,” Andy Brennan shares his meditations on artisanship, craft, apples, and modern society.


“Smart, wise, raw, generous, unapologetic, and poetic. As delicious to drink in and as profound as the unique and artful ciders he makes."
—DEIRDRE HEEKIN

Recently, author Michael Foley (Farming for the Long Haul) included this Wendell Berry quote in an email he sent me: "Expect the end of the world. Laugh. Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful though you have considered all the facts.”

Berry's words informed my recommendation of these three titles—all of which focus on resourcefulness, self-reliance, and resilience while accepting that we live in uncertain times. More succinctly (and here I’ll quote hip hop artists Cypress Hill): "When the st*t goes down, you better be ready.”

Read these books. Study them. Keep them close at hand. With a little bit of knowledge and preparation, it will be easier to laugh at the absurdity of it all.
