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.

Drip irrigation is the best way to help any plant flourish and survive tough times, especially during short or long droughts. Pick the wrong "stuff" and you easily can feel overwhelmed. Robert Kourik's Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates clearly explains how to use less water yet increase the yields of vegetables and promote the growth and flowering of all plants — trees, shrubs and container plants — in any climate, even where it rains irregularly.

In the tradition of the original groundbreaking book, this fully revised edition incorporates new information essential for gardeners, including how to manage limited water supplies with precision and efficiency, without the clutter of hundreds of widgets and gizmos, and the knowledge is shared in Kourik's inimitable, friendly, down-to-earth and easy-to-understand style.

Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates reveals how to:

  • Utilize drip irrigation for everything you grow — trees, shrubs, hanging plants, container plants, and vegetable and flower gardens — and save up to 50 percent of your water compared to sprinklers.
  • Use a streamlined configuration of hardware and tubing.
  • Choose the best, sturdiest hardware that will last for decades in your home landscape and vegetable garden.
  • Pick tubing that has no emitters punched on the outside — these have a tendency to break off — and use this tubing buried beneath the surface to irrigate without losing any water to wind or evaporation.
  • Roll out a drip system in a very short period of time, avoiding tedious hours punching in emitters or adding smaller tubing to reach each plant.
  • Capture and reuse gray water and cistern water for irrigation.
  • Construct a system in which the main parts are effectively hidden or can be simply attached to an existing garden faucet.

About the author:
During the 1975 California drought, Robert Kourik created a primitive drip system, and since then, he has continued to innovate using the latest technologies. He has written 10 instructional books advocating sustainable gardening, edible landscaping and a healthy lifestyle, including Roots Demystified. He lives in Occidental, Calif.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $16.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Like the Victory Gardens of World War II, food gardens planted in sunny back or side yards during these economically challenging times can provide families with nourishing, delicious food at a fraction of what it would cost at a supermarket.

Homegrown Vegetables, Fruits and Herbs: A Bountiful, Healthful Garden for Lean Times will help aspiring gardeners avoid disappointment or failure when tending their first food gardens, and it will help families who are already growing food crops to grow more and reduce their food costs.

Inside, you'll find:

  • 275 instructional and inspiring color photographs from a seasoned garden photographer
  • Dozens of hints and tips, many of which will interest even experienced gardeners
  • Selecting the site for a food garden and setting a realistic size
  • No-till gardening
  • Making food gardening easier and cheaper
  • Fertilizers, soil conditioners, mulches, green manures, tonics and do-it-yourself soil tests
  • Understanding garden soils and nutrients
  • Ways to keep crops fresh and full of flavor after picking
  • Guide to fruit and vegetables, and sources for vegetable seeds as well as seedlings for fruits and vegetables


About the author: Jim Wilson earned a B.S. in agriculture from the University of Missouri and has been active in home and commercial horticulture for more than 60 years. He has visited home and public gardens in many countries and in the United States. He has lived and gardened in nine different states, coast to coast. Wilson spent 13 years in garden television.
