63 Food Not Lawns: How to Turn Your Yard Into a Garden and Your Neighborhood Into a Community

Flores, H C, and Hemenway, Toby (Foreword by) Chelsea Green Publishing Company 2006 9.78E+12 Illustrated. Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 334 p. Contai Holmstrom, Jackie 

Gardening can be a political act. Creativity, fulfillment, connection, revolution it all begins when we get our hands in the dirt. Food Not Lawns combines practical wisdom on ecological design and community-building with a fresh, green perspective on an age-old subject. Activist and urban gardener Heather Flores shares her nine-step permaculture design to help farmsteaders and city dwellers alike build fertile soil, promote biodiversity, and increase natural habitat in their own paradise gardens. But Food Not Lawns doesn't begin and end in the seed bed. This joyful permaculture lifestyle manual inspires readers to apply the principles of the paradise garden simplicity, resourcefulness, creativity, mindfulness, and community to all aspects of life. Plant guerilla gardens in barren intersections and medians; organize community meals; start a street theater troupe or host a local art swap; free your kitchen from refrigeration and enjoy truly fresh, nourishing foods from your own plot of land; work with children to create garden play spaces. Flores cares passionately about the damaged state of our environment and the ills of our throwaway society. In Food Not Lawns, she shows us how to reclaim the earth one garden at a time.

64 Future Scenarios: How Communities Can Adapt to Peak Oil and Climate Change

Holmgren, David Paperback

Brand New 

In Future Scenarios, permaculture co-originator and leading sustainability innovator David Holmgren outlines four scenarios that bring to life the likely cultural, political, agricultural, and economic implications of peak oil and climate change, and the generations-long era of “energy descent” that faces us. “Scenario planning,” Holmgren explains, “allows us to use stories about the future as a reference point for imagining how particular strategies and structures might thrive, fail, or be transformed.” Future Scenarios depicts four very different futures. Each is a permutation of mild or destructive climate change, combined with either slow or severe energy declines. Probable futures, explains Holmgren, range from the relatively benign Green Tech scenario to the near catastrophic Lifeboats scenario. As Adam Grubb, founder of the influential Energy Bulletin Web site, says, “These aren’t two-dimensional nightmarish scenarios designed to scare people into environmental action. They are compellingly fleshed-out visions of quite plausible alternative futures, which delve into energy, politics, agriculture, social, and even spiritual trends. What they do help make clear are the best strategies for preparing for and adapting to these possible futures.” Future Scenarios provides brilliant and balanced consideration of the world’s options and will prove to be one of the most important books of the year.

73 Grow Your Own Food Made Easy: Nutritious Organic Produce from Your Own Garden: A Step-by-Step Guide

McDowell, C. Forrest & Clark-McDowell, Tricia Eugene, Oregon Cortesia Press 2009 942064739 

New 68 p. 

Why This Guide is So Important There is a growing Earth-friendly revolution taking hold: the desire to have more choice and control in the foods we consume. Food gardening at home, or in a community plot, is part of a broad shift in consciousness that focuses on wellness, nutrition and self-sufficiency. Personal or community food security allows households to provide more of their food needs and/or to share their harvest with others in need. Home food gardening reacquaints us with optimally fresh, tasty and nutritious fruits and vegetables costing a fraction of store-bought produce that is often shipped long distances. It teaches children that fruits and vegetables come from the earth, not grown in grocery stores. It inspires us to be healthwise: to remember that we are what we eat. Importantly, food gardening can save us hundreds of dollars a year in food expenses. The Old Model Food policy today is primarily based on creating a dependent consumer whose needs are determined by government, large corporations, agribusinesses, politics, and media marketing. As a result, home food production and preservation in the U.S. has declined from 35% of households in 1870 to only 1% in 2005. Additionally (and in spite of scientific advances), people suffer from diminished health and healthcare, poor air, water and soil quality, and overprocessed, nutrient-poor foods. Perhaps most detrimental to individuals is the loss of a heartfelt and informed connection to this Earth: its soil, water, air, habitat and species. Earth s natural resources are too often associated with commodities. As a result, people forget to live simply so that others, and this Earth, may simply live. They misplace the spirit of stewardship and generosity. The New Model The basic foundation of a new food policy restores informed choice as a prosumer: one who is empowered in their lifestyle habits and needs to be part of a broader solution to respect Earth s resources, to live within one s means, to commit to

80 Handy Farm Devices: And How to Make Them

Cobleigh, Rolfe Skyhorse Publishing 2007 1602391033 / 9781602391031 Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 288 p. Contai 

Originally published in 1909, "Handy Farm Devices" is more than an engaging trip down memory lane. For any small farmer or homesteader, the techniques and devices described in detail are just as useful, durable, and fully functional today as they were 75 years ago. You will learn to build a portable chicken coop, a stone boat (for moving stone), a lightweight orchard ladder, gates that don't sag, and a handy wood splitter, as well as rudimentary farm structures, well houses, bee hives, a baby's cradle, a cheese press and much more. The charming, turn-of-the-century language and useful and inspirational quotes from Shakespeare, the Bible, Bacon, Longfellow and many others make this book a delight to read. --Mark A. Hetts--Review A reprint of a 1910 classic, this well-illustrated 288-page paperback is filled with clever ideas and useful information. Even those of us who'd rather pass on making a movable brooder house for chickens of fashioning a baby cradle from an old barrel will find wisdom in this thrift-conscious and often environmentally wise celebration of self-sufficiency. --Country Living Magazine

81 Holy Shit: Managing Manure to Save Mankind

Logsdon, Gene 1603582517 / 9781603582513 Paperback

Brand New! 

In his insightful new book, Holy Shit, Managing Manure To Save Mankind, contrary farmer Gene Logsdon provides the inside story of manure—our greatest, yet most misunderstood, natural resource. He begins by lamenting a modern society that not only throws away both animal and human manure—worth billions of dollars in fertilizer value—but that spends a staggering amount of money to do so. This wastefulness makes even less sense as the supply of mined or chemically synthesized fertilizers dwindles and their cost skyrockets. In fact, he argues, if we do not learn how to turn our manures into fertilizer to keep food production in line with increasing population, our civilization, like so many that went before it, will inevitably decline. With his trademark humor, his years of experience writing about both farming and waste management, and his uncanny eye for the small but important details, Logsdon artfully describes how to manage farm manure, pet manure, and human manure to make fertilizer and humus. He covers the field, so to speak, discussing topics like: How to select the right pitchfork for the job and use it correctly, How to operate a small manure spreader, How to build a barn manure pack with farm animal manure, How to compost cat and dog waste • How to recycle toilet water for irrigation purposes, and How to get rid of our irrational paranoia about feces and urine. Gene Logsdon does not mince words. This fresh, fascinating, and entertaining look at an earthy, but absolutely crucial, subject, is a small gem and is destined to become a classic of our agricultural literature.

86 How to Build a Solar Cell That Really Works!

Noon, Walt 1114203769 / 9781114203761 Paperback

Brand New 

Walt Noon will show you how to quickly and inexpensively build a copper oxide photo cell. Admittedly, its overall efficiency doesn't come close to modern silicon cells, but neither does the cost. You can crank out cells for pennies. Connect many cells in parallel and series, and you can generate surprising amounts of power. The process requires only simple tools. The chemicals, like all chemicals, can be dangerous if mishandled, but the worst is probably nitric acid which is used to thoroughly clean the copper. He'll show you to make a working cell, test it, troubleshoot it if necessary, and even give you ideas on an experimental painted cell that he's working on. In addition, he'll give you schematics of test circuits, sample applications, and interesting projects that he's tried. You'll also get names and addresses of suppliers. The author is not a pro, but he has safely built and used these solar cells. You can do the same. Get a copy of this! 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 booklet 22 pages
