Description

Scientist/gardener Caarol Deppe combines her passion for gardening with newly emerging scientific information from many fields - resilience science, climatology, ecology, anthopology, sustianable agriculture, nutrition, and health science. In this book Deppe extends these principles with detailed information about growing and using five keystone crops that are especially important for anyone seeking greater self-reliance: potatoes, corn, beans, squash and eggs. In this book you'll learn how to: garden in a time of climate change and unpredictable weather; grow, use, and store more of your staple crops; save your own seeds and seed potatoes; and keep a flock of ducks and chickens whilst integrating them into your gardening activities, and growing most of their feed. The Resilient Gardener is both a conceptual and hands-on gardening book. "Resilience" here is broadly conceived, and encompasses a full range of challenges, from the personal, financial, health, dietary - to serious regional disasters and global climate change. However this is a supremely optimistic and realistic book about how resilient gardeners (and their gardens) can flourish even in challenging times and help their communities to survive through everything that comes their way - tomorrow or in the next thousand years.
