      CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.00. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

      Nearly four decades after her mother, Frances Moore Lappé, published Diet for a Small Planet, sparking a revolution in our thinking about the social and environmental impact of our food choices, Anna Lappé picks up the conversation, examining another hidden cost of our food system: the climate crisis. From raising cattle in industrial-scale feedlots to razing rainforests to make palm oil for Pop-Tarts, the choices we make about how we put food on our plates, and what we do with the waste, contribute to as much as one third of total greenhouse-gas emissions. Lappé exposes the interests resisting this crucial conversation while she educates and empowers readers and eaters committed to healing the planet.

      Scientist and gardener Carol Deppe combines her passion for gardening with newly emerging scientific information from many fields — resilience science, climatology, climate change, ecology, anthropology, paleontology, sustainable agriculture, nutrition, health and medicine. In the last half of The Resilient Gardener, Deppe extends and illustrates these principles with detailed information about growing and using five key crops: potatoes, corn, beans, squash and eggs.

      In this book you’ll learn how to:

      • Garden in an era of unpredictable weather and climate change
      • Grow, store, and use more of your own staple crops
      • Garden efficiently and comfortably (even if you have a bad back)
      • Grow, store, and cook different varieties of potatoes and save your own potato seed
      • Grow the right varieties of corn to make your own gourmet-quality, fast-cooking polenta, cornbread, parched corn, corn cakes, pancakes and even savory corn gravy
      • Make whole-grain, corn-based breads and cakes using the author’s original gluten-free recipes involving no other grains, artificial binders, or dairy products
      • Grow and use popbeans and other grain legumes
      • Grow, store, and use summer, winter, and drying squash
      • Keep a home laying flock of ducks or chickens; integrate them with your gardening, and grow most of their feed
      The Resilient Gardener is both a conceptual and a hands-on gardening book, and is suitable for gardeners at all levels of experience. Resilience here is broadly conceived and encompasses a full range of problems, from personal hard times such as injuries, family crises, financial problems, health problems, and special dietary needs (gluten intolerance, food allergies, carbohydrate sensitivity, and a need for weight control) to serious regional and global disasters and climate change. It is a supremely optimistic as well as realistic book about how resilient gardeners and their gardens can flourish even in challenging times and help their communities to survive and thrive through everything that comes their way — from tomorrow through the next thousand years.

      CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $75.00. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

      A book that became an instant classic when it first appeared in 1995, Old Southern Apples is an indispensable reference for fruit lovers everywhere, especially those who live in the southern United States. Out of print for several years, this newly revised and expanded edition now features descriptions of some 1,800 apple varieties that either originated in the South or were widely grown there before 1928.

      Author Lee Calhoun is one of the foremost figures in apple conservation in America. This masterwork reflects his knowledge and personal experience during more than 30 years, as he sought out and grew hundreds of classic apples, including both legendary varieties such as Nickajack and Magnum Bonum and little-known ones such as Buff and Cullasaga. Representing our common orchard heritage, many of these apples are at risk today by disappearing from our national table.

      Illustrated with more than 120 color images of classic apples from the National Agricultural Library’s collection of watercolor paintings, Old Southern Apples is a fascinating and beautiful reference and gift book. In addition to A-to-Z descriptions of apple varieties, both extant and extinct, Calhoun provides a brief history of apple culture in the South, and includes practical information on growing apples and on their traditional uses.

      About the author
      Lee Calhoun lives in Chatham County, N.C., where he settled after a career in the military. During the past three decades he has sought out many old-time Southern apples and has grown more than 550 varieties himself. For many years he and his wife, Edith, operated Calhoun Nursery, which was a key resource for rare and regional apple varieties.

      CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

      Meat is a groundbreaking exploration of the difficult environmental, ethical and social issues surrounding the human consumption of animals, and the future of livestock in sustainable agriculture. Garnering huge praise in the U.K., this book answers the question: Should we be farming animals, or not? The answer is not simple; indeed, we must decrease the amount of meat we eat (both for the planet and for ourselves), and the industrial meat system is hugely problematic. Even so, author Simon Fairlie presents in-depth research in favor of small-scale, holistic, and integrated farming systems that include pastured, free-range livestock as the answer to the pro-meat or no-meat debate. George Monbiot, for example, a well-known environmental activist and supporter of veganism, has retracted his support for veganism after reading Meat. This is a life-changing book.

      The issues this book addresses — food security, first and foremost — are being undermined by entities demanding rules and regulations in food matters without enough knowledge. Meat fills these gaps, and Fairlie’s data proves the solution is neither veganism nor our current model. In fact, Fairlie, a farmer in his own right, presents an agricultural and environmental theory that takes off where other work on vegetarianism and veganism have fallen short in their global scope. His research is based in deep permacultural theory, and a respect for natural systems that flourished long before corporate agriculture and animal factory farms. Most importantly, in the end, Fairlie shows humility in the face of unanswered questions — a rare and wonderful asset that has already invited global discussion among those who might otherwise sheer away from the topic. Meat is a crucial addition to the agricultural canon.
