Simple, straightforward advice for designing your space and growing your harvest will help you transform just a snippet of space into a stylish and edible oasis.

So go ahead, picture that tiny nook, corner, strip, porch, alley, balcony or postage-stamp-sized yard overflowing with fingerling potatoes, fragrant herbs, sugar snap peas, French breakfast radishes and scarlet runner beans.

        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 $24.99 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

        With a keen eye for aesthetics matched by a strong concern for the environment, garden expert Stephen Orr has developed a sense of what a modern garden should be: small, visually pleasing and responsible. In Tomorrow’s Garden, he presents gardens in 14 American cities that have been scaled back and simplified without sacrificing beauty or innovative design.

        A devoted supporter of the organic gardening movement, Orr advises gardeners to think about their gardens as part of an interconnected whole with the surrounding environment — with an eye for water usage, local ecology and preservation of resources. However, for those who are afraid that a sustainable garden means a lack of flora and fauna, Orr believes that a garden, first and foremost, should be a thing of beauty. He encourages flower lovers to plant flowers, and he showcases gardens filled with traditional and exotic plants that are designed with both visual appeal and the environment in mind.

        With detailed case studies, stunning photographs, and an appendix of resources and information to help gardeners achieve their ecological best, Tomorrow’s Garden will teach you the true definition of sustainability and show you how to create beauty without excess in the 21st century and beyond.
