Great book on the future of our gardens
I love borrowing books from my local library so I’m always searching their catalog for things I’m interested in. My “food forest” search lead me to The New American Landscape – Leading Voices on the Future of Sustainable Gardening. What I most love about this book is it’s format. Because it is a gathering of experts in the fields of ecology, horticulture, soil biology, landscape design, permaculture, bio-instensive farming, etc… it really hits home for me on so many levels. This multi-angle attach synthesizes from the soil (managing soil health) to the roof (green roofs) and everywhere in between what can be done to shape our own yards into ecologically contributing spaces. I highly recommend this book for sustainable landscape beginners and experienced gardeners alike.
