From foundation to finish, a wealth of information is available on sustainable construction methods. Entire volumes have been published on individual green and natural building techniques! But with so many different ideas from which to choose, there is no single resource that allows an owner or builder to quickly and objectively compare the merits of each system for their particular project.

Making Better Buildings cuts through the hype and provides the unvarnished facts about the upsides and downsides of the most widely discussed materials and technologies. Drawing on the real-world experiences of designer/builders, this comparative guide systematically and comprehensively examines each approach in terms of:

  • Cost, sourcing, labor intensity, and ease of construction
  • Energy efficiency, embodied energy and environmental impacts
  • Availability/accessibility
  • Viable applications and future potential
Each chapter is rounded out by a chart that summarizes the material in a quick and accessible manner.

Whether you are an owner preparing to build a green or natural home, or a conventional contractor determined to integrate sustainable alternatives into your existing construction practices, this up-to-the minute resource will help you make the best decisions for your project, while meeting your energy, efficiency, budgetary and site-specific needs.

  • Cooking, cleaning and drying the day's bounty
  • Edible, inedible or toxic? Photographs and descriptions for what to pick and what to avoid
  • Poisonous varieties and how to recognize them
All content has been verified by a professional mycologist.

Marisa McClellan was an adult in a high-rise in Philadelphia when she rediscovered canning, and found herself under the preserving spell. She grew accustomed to working in large batches because most "vintage" recipes are written to feed a large family, or to use up a farm-size crop. Increasingly, however, she found that smaller batches suited her life better. Working with a quart, pound, pint or bunch of produce (and not a bushel) allows for dabbling in preserving without committing a whole shelf to storing a single type of jam.

Preserving by the Pint is meant to be a guide for saving smaller batches from farmers markets and produce stands-preserving tricks for stopping time in a jar. McClellan's recipes offer tastes of unusual preserves like Blueberry Maple Jam, Mustardy Rhubarb Chutney, Sorrel Pesto, and Zucchini Bread and Butter Pickles. Organized seasonally, these pestos, sauces, mostardas, chutneys, butters, jams, jellies and pickles are speedy, too: Some take under an hour, leaving you more time to plan your next batch.

But more than anything, this clever, colorful new book captures the essence of growing edibles for anyone, regardless of age: It is fun and rewarding.
