Thirteen years in the making, Gardening: An Ecological Approach (to individual, community, and global health) provides 400 pages of practical gardening, ecology, and nutrition information in an easy-to-find, easy-to-understand format. The chapters include 1) concerns about industrial food and reasons to grow a garden; 2) basic concepts and principles about backyard and biosphere ecology; 3) gardening methods, techniques, and skills; 4) garden plant families and how to grow 70 common garden plants; and 5) keys to health and vitality--a basic approach to nutrition. The detailed table of contents and the comprehensive index provide immediate access to the wide range of topics. The book includes many interactive exercises ranging from an analysis of your garden's climate and soils to a planting plan based on your gardening objectives. Profusely illustrated with hundreds of original pen-and-ink drawings, Gardening: An Ecological Approach provides a compelling, artistic, and useful approach to gardening. The book is 8-1/2" x 11", coil-bound with clear protective covers.
