The first edition of Gaia's Garden sparked the imagination of America's home gardeners, introducing permaculture's central message: Working with Nature, not against her, results in more beautiful, abundant and sustainable gardens. As Toby Hemenway demonstrates, it's satisfying and easy to create a permaculture garden, a complete backyard ecosystem, by assembling communities of plants that can work cooperatively and perform a variety of functions, including:

  • Building and maintaining soil fertility and structure
  • Catching water and conserving it in the landscape
  • Providing habitat for beneficial insects, birds and animals
  • Growing an edible "forest" that yields seasonal fruits, nuts and other foods

This revised and updated edition also features a new chapter on urban sustainable permaculture, designed especially for people in cities and suburbs who have very limited growing space. Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture details the steps to designing and assembling an ecological garden. Whatever size yard or garden you have to work with, you can apply basic permaculture principles to make it more diverse, more natural, more productive and more beautiful.

About the Author: Toby Hemenway is an adjunct assistant professor at Portland State University. He teaches permaculture and consults and lectures on ecological design throughout the country. His writing has appeared in magazines such as Whole Earth Review, Natural Home and Kitchen Gardener.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $9.99 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Avoid the mess of stirring and cooking with this 10.5-inch-long, handsome and understated spoon rest from Natural Home. Made of stainless steel with light brown bamboo accents, this practical kitchen accessory will save you extra clean-up time while lending its uniquely natural beauty to the most-used room in your home.

Tough, durable and lightweight, bamboo is a natural in the kitchen. One of nature's most sustainable resources, bamboo is stronger than oak and reaches maturity in just four years — without pesticides. Bamboo's density makes it naturally water-resistant, which inhibits germs and bacteria. It won't scratch your pans like metal and doesn't absorb moisture like conventional wood.

Though used like timber, bamboo is a grass that self-propagates as it spreads underground via a network of rhizomes. A white oak tree takes 120 years to grow to maturity; bamboo takes three-and-a-half to seven years. This self-regenerating plant grows without pesticides and needs very little water; some species grow as much as 3 feet a day. Because of its fast growth rate, bamboo sequesters carbon dioxide at faster rates than hardwood trees — another bonus for the environment.

Stainless steel does not leach chemicals. The stainless steel used is 93 percent recycled.

Care instructions: Hand wash only.
Manufactured in China.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $29.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

The Green Building Decision Kit CD-ROM is the software that belongs to the Green Building Decision Kit. It's designed to educate and aid you with the decision making process of 'green' construction: residential or small commercial, new or remodeling.

The Green Decision Matrix software provides a comparison of options in each area of the green building discussion based upon with user's input. The software begins with input regarding your priorities (i.e. costs, living style, embodied energy, environmental impacts, etc.) and uses these priorities during the 'weighting' process to provide a most favorable to least favorable list for each component.

This CD-ROM, with or without the rest of the Green Building Decision Kit, is a helpful tool for keeping track of your priorities.
