This book offers an array of ideas on how to grow fruits, vegetables and other edibles in harmony with nature. It emphasizes permaculture techniques, outlining organic methods that maximize yield while minimizing ecological impact. It gives advice on everything from rainwater collection and irrigation to growing mushrooms, hugelkultur (burying wood to increase soil water retention) and the low-maintenance gardening method known as "forest gardening."

A section on uncommon fruits suggests high-yield varieties (many suitable for zones 3 and up) and includes an excellent summary on grafting and pruning techniques. This well-illustrated, easy-to-follow book includes recipes for many of the crops described, and even gives instructions on building your own earthen oven.

Softcover, 8" × 9", 143 pages, 2013.
