        To ensure food security and restore the health of the planet, we need to move beyond industrial agriculture and return to the practice of small-scale, local farming. Bioshelter Market Garden: A Permaculture Farm describes the creation of a sustainable food system through a detailed case study of the successful year-round organic market garden and permaculture design at Pennsylvania’s Three Sisters Farm.

        At the heart of Three Sisters is its bioshelter — a solar greenhouse which integrates growing facilities, poultry housing, a potting room, storage, kitchen facilities, compost bins, a reference library and classroom area. Bioshelter Market Garden examines how the bioshelter promotes greater biodiversity and is an energy-efficient method of extending crop production through Pennsylvania's cold winter months.

        Both visionary and practical, this fully illustrated book contains a wealth of information on the application of permaculture principles. Some of the topics covered include:

        • Design and management of an intensive market garden farm
        • Energy systems and bio-thermal resources
        • Ecological soil management and pest control
        • Wetlands usage
        • Solar greenhouse design and management.
        Whatever your gardening experience and ambitions, this comprehensive manual is sure to inform and inspire.

        URBAN HOMESTEADING

        Rachel Kaplan with Ruby Blume
        Paperback

        Price: $16.95

        The urban homesteading movement is spreading rapidly across the nation. Urban Homesteading is the perfect guide for urbanites who want to reduce their impact on the environment and gain satisfaction from the fruits of their own labor. Full of practical information, as well as inspiring stories from people already living the urban homesteading life, this colorful guide breaks down the lifestyle basics for any reader.

        In the search for sustainable solutions to the seemingly insurmountable problems of our time, city-dwellers across the country are finding creative new ways to live. Picking up a shovel and a hoe, turning their closets, roofs, fire escapes, and backyard decks into fruitful gardens and orchards and places for chickens to forage, urban farmers are reclaiming heirloom agrarian practices as strategies for responsible living.

        Urban Homesteading embraces the core concepts of localization (fulfilling basic needs close to where we live), self–reliance (re–learning that food comes from the ground, not the grocery store), and sustainability (giving back at least as much as we take). Readers will find concise how–to information that they can immediately set into practice, from making solar cookers and growing tomatoes in a pot to raising chickens on a tiny plot and maintaining the mental serenity of country life in the fast–paced city environment. This is a must–have handbook for city folk with a passion for the simple life.

        CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

        People everywhere are turning patches of soil into bountiful vegetable gardens, and each spring a new crop of beginners pick up trowels and plant seeds for the first time. They're planting tomatoes in raised beds, runner beans in small plots, and strawberries in containers. But there is one place that has, until now, been woefully neglected — the front yard.

        The typical veggie garden, with its raised beds and plots, is not the most attractive type of garden, and favorite edible plants like tomatoes and cucumbers have a tendency to look scraggily, even in their prime. But The Edible Front Yard isn't about the typical veggie garden, and author Ivette Soler is passionate about putting edibles up front and creating edible gardens with curb appeal.

        Soler offers step-by-step instructions for converting all or part of a lawn into an edible paradise; specific guidelines for selecting and planting the most attractive edible plants; and design advice and plans for the best placement and for combining edibles with ornamentals in pleasing ways. Inspiring and accessible, The Edible Front Yard is a one-stop resource for a front-and-center edible garden that is both beautiful and bountiful year-round.
