Garden Revolution

AHS Book Award winner This lushly-photographed reference is an important moment in horticulture that will be embraced by anyone looking for a better, smarter way to garden. Larry Weaner is an icon in the world of ecological landscape design, and now his revolutionary approach is available to all gardeners. Garden Revolution shows how an ecological approach to planting can lead to beautiful gardens that buck much of conventional gardening’s counter-productive, time-consuming practices. Instead of picking the wrong plant and then constantly tilling, weeding, irrigating, and fertilizing, Weaner advocates for choosing plants that are adapted to the soil and climate of a specific site and letting them naturally evolve over time. Allowing the plants to find their own niches, to spread their seed around until they find the microclimate and spot that suits them best, creates a landscape that is vibrant, dynamic, and gorgeous year after year.

Raised Bed Revolution

Raised Bed Revolution

Join the revolution and create a beautiful raised bed garden with inspiration from the ultimate raised bed gardening guidebook! Raised bed gardening is the fastest-growing garden strategy today, and Raised Bed Revolution is its ultimate guidebook. The book includes information about size requirements for constructing raised beds, height suggestions, types of materials you can use, and creative tips for fitting the maximum garden capacity into small spaces--including vertical gardening. Enhanced with gorgeous photography, this book covers subjects such as growing-medium options, rooftop gardening, cost-effective gardening solutions, planting tips, watering strategies (automatic water drip systems and hand watering), and more. The process of creating and building raised beds is a cinch, too, thanks to the extensive gallery of design ideas and step-by-step projects. This gardening strategy is taking serious root. Why? Several reasons: - Raised beds allow gardeners to practice space efficiency as well as accessibility (the beds can be customized to be any height). - Raised beds permit gardeners to use their own soil, and they can be designed with wheels for easy portability if partial sunlight is a problem. - Water conservation is easier for gardeners who use raised beds. - Pest control is assisted because most garden pests can't make the leap up into the raised bed. For yards that struggle with drainage, raised bed gardening offers a no-brainer solution. Raised beds simply create a more interesting yard! Find out more about why everyone is joining the raised bed revolution. You can roll up your sleeves and join it, too!

Garden Revolution

Garden Revolution

A leading landscape designer shows how an ecological approach can lead to beautiful gardens that benefit the environment—and require less time and money. According to landscape designer Larry Weaner, conventional gardening is full of counter-intuitive, time-consuming, and even harmful habits. The constant tilling, weeding, irrigating, and fertilizing create perpetual disturbance in a plot’s ecology—and waste countless hours in a dubious struggle against nature. In Gardening Revolution, Weaner offers a radically new approach based on the ways plants and wildlife behave in nature. He advocates for a more fluid style, choosing plants that are adapted to the soil and climate and then capitalizing on positive developments as they occur. This lushly photographed reference is for anyone looking for a better, smarter way to garden.

Utopia S Garden

Utopia S Garden

The royal Parisian botanical garden, the Jardin du Roi, was a jewel in the crown of the French Old Regime, praised by both rulers and scientific practitioners. Yet unlike many such institutions, the Jardin not only survived the French Revolution but by 1800 had become the world's leading public establishment of natural history: the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle. E. C. Spary traces the scientific, administrative, and political strategies that enabled the foundation of the Muséum, arguing that agriculture and animal breeding rank alongside classification and collections in explaining why natural history was important for French rulers. But the Muséum's success was also a consequence of its employees' Revolutionary rhetoric: by displaying the natural order, they suggested, the institution could assist in fashioning a self-educating, self-policing Republican people. Natural history was presented as an indispensable source of national prosperity and individual virtue. Spary's fascinating account opens a new chapter in the history of France, science, and the Enlightenment.

The Organic No Till Farming Revolution

The Organic No Till Farming Revolution

Aprenda a usar sistemas naturales de siembra directa para aumentar los beneficios, la eficiencia, la captación de carbono y la salud de la tierra de su pequeña granja. La revolución de la siembra directa orgánica, una guía exhaustiva creada por granjeros, muestra cómo la siembra directa facilita la puesta en marcha de una granja pequeña, reduce las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, incrementa la eficiencia y los beneficios, y promueve la salud de la tierra. Aunque la siembra sin arado ha sido un objetivo de la agricultura desde hace mucho tiempo, casi todo el mundo lo utiliza y el arado sigue siendo uno de los paradigmas más dominantes. Pero el arado mata la vida benéfica de la tierra, acaba con la materia orgánica y libera dióxido de carbono. Si pudiéramos preparar la tierra sin arar, ahorraríamos tiempo y energía, aumentaríamos la materia orgánica de la tierra, captaríamos carbono y reduciríamos nuestra dependencia a la maquinaria. Este manual práctico incluye: Por qué los rodillos de labranza no funcionan en la mayoría de las granjas pequeñas Una estructura de toma de decisiones para los cuatro métodos de siembra directa: ocultación, solarización, mantilla orgánica local y aplicación en lechos Ideas para arrancar una granja de siembra directa o transformar una granja activa Una lista de herramientas, fuentes y suministros. Este es el único manual de su clase, escrito específicamente para agricultores de granjas naturales a pequeña escala que desean expandir o explorar métodos regeneradores y libres de químicos.
