        Based on the James Beard Award–winning blog The One-Block Diet, this all-in-one home gardening, do-it-yourself guide and cookbook shows you how to transform a backyard or garden into a self-sufficient locavore’s paradise.

        When Margo True and her fellow staffers at Northern California–based Sunset magazine walked around the grounds of their Menlo Park office, they saw more than just a lawn and some gardens. Instead, they saw a fresh, bountiful food source, the makings for intrepid edible projects, and a series of seasonal feasts — all just waiting to happen.

        The One-Block Feast is the story of how True and her team took an inspired idea and transformed it into an ambitious commitment: to create four feasts over the course of a year, using only what could be grown or raised in their backyard-sized plot. She candidly shares the group’s many successes and often humorous setbacks as they try their hands at chicken farming, cheese making, olive pressing, home brewing, beekeeping, winemaking and more.

        Grouped into gardening, project and recipe guides for each season, The One-Block Feast is a complete resource for planning an eco-friendly kitchen garden; making your own pantry staples for year-round cooking and gifts; raising bees, chickens and even a cow; and creating made-from-scratch meals from ingredients you’ve grown yourself. Chapters are organized by season, each featuring a planting plan and crop-by-crop instructions, an account of how that season’s projects played out for the Sunset team, and a multicourse dinner menu composed of imaginative, appealing and ultra-resourceful vegetarian recipes, such as:

        Butternut Squash Gnocchi With Chard and Sage Brown Butter, Egg and Gouda Crepes, Whole Wheat Pizzas With Roasted Vegetables and Homemade Cheeses, Fresh Corn Soup With Zucchini Blossoms, Braised Winter Greens With Preserved Lemons and Red Chile, Summer Lemongrass Custards, Honey Ice Cream

        Generously illustrated and easy to follow, this ultimate resource for today’s urban homesteader will inspire you to take “eating local” to a whole new level.

        Recommended Product for Wiser Living: Today, more than ever before, our society is seeking ways to live more conscientiously. To help bring you the very best inspiration and information about greener, more sustainable lifestyles, MOTHER EARTH NEWS is recommending books to readers. For 40 years, MOTHER EARTH NEWS has been North America’s “Original Guide to Living Wisely,” creating books and magazines for people with a passion for self-reliance and a desire to live in harmony with nature.

        North American’s love gardening but what could be worse than convincing them that growing their own food is difficult. With the world at or beyond peak oil, and the threat of climate change demanding we eat closer to home there has never been a better time to start growing vegetables. The great news is that it really is easy and a huge source of joy and accomplishment for gardeners to start turning backyards into produce departments. Previous limited space and intensive gardening books make gardening look difficult. There’s too many charts. Too many checklists to tick off. Too much talk of trace minerals and hard to find soil supplements. Growing vegetables is not hard. In fact it’s hard not to do it well, so a book shouldn’t intimidate people. That’s why The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook is such a breath of fresh air.

        It assures people there’s nothing to it, but they should just get out there and do it. With basic tips and techniques it provides some tools but not to the point of keeping people out of the garden all together thinking they’ll miss some important part of the “system”.

        As a motivator it provides some background on how energy intensive the North American diet is and how fossil fuel resource depletion will lead to us spending an every increasing percentage of our incomes on food. With many hard hit by the economic crisis, growing your own food simply makes economic sense. To further motivate readers The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook gives readers the incredible health benefits of each of the vegetables and fruits they grown. Sure, Grandma always told us to eat our vegetables but as adults it’s nice to know about all the incredible health benefits of each item you’re growing. Suddenly the cancer fighting properties of the broccoli provide a whole new motivation to start growing it yourself. And having strategies for harvesting rainwater, watering with drip irrigation and dealing with some of the challenges our changing climate may throw at you help you helps taylor the information to each readers unique growing circumstances.

        Whether you’ve got a small city lot, a typical suburban backyard or a large country property The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook is the tool you need to get motivated to start growing healthy, local, inexpensive and soil and soul enriching vegetables today!

        • How to grow your own food for the "hungry gap" from April to June
        • How to store food for eating in winter
        • A monthly sowing, planting and growing calendar
        • Harvesting advice from garlic in July to spring cabbage and pea shoots in May

        Many people want to grow fruit on a small scale but lack the insight to be successful orchardists. Growing tree fruits and berries is something virtually anyone with space and passionate desire can do—given wise guidance and a personal commitment to observe the teachings of the trees. A holistic grower knows that producing fruit is not about manipulating nature but more importantly, fostering nature. Orcharding then becomes a fascinating adventure sure to provide your family with all sorts of mouth-watering fruit.

        The Holistic Orchard demystifies the basic skills everybody should know about the inner-workings of the orchard ecosystem, as well as orchard design, soil biology, and organic health management. Detailed insights on grafting, planting, pruning, and choosing the right varieties for your climate are also included, along with a step-by-step instructional calendar to guide growers through the entire orchard year. The extensive profiles of pome fruits (apples, pears, asian pears, quinces), stone fruits (cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums), and berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, gooseberries, currants, and elderberries) will quickly have you savoring the prospects.

        Phillips completely changed the conversation about healthy orcharding with his first bestselling book, The Apple Grower, and now he takes that dialogue even further, drawing connections between home orcharding and permaculture; the importance of native pollinators; the world of understory plantings with shade-tolerant berry bushes and other insectary plants; detailed information on cover crops and biodiversity; and the newest research on safe, homegrown solutions to pest and disease challenges.

        All along the way, Phillips' expertise and enthusiasm for healthy growing shines through, as does his ability to put the usual horticultural facts into an integrated ecology perspective. This book will inspire beginners as well as provide deeper answers for experienced fruit growers looking for scientific organic approaches. Exciting times lie ahead for those who now have every reason in the world to confidently plant that very first fruit tree!
