The Resilient Gardener


add to cart

By Carol Deppe. Food Production and Self-Reliance in Uncertain Times. Including the five crops you need to survive and thrive - Potatoes, corn, Beans, Squash and Eggs.
The Resilient Gardener is both a conceptual and a hands-on gardening book for gardeners at all levels of experience for growing, storing and using crops that provide ultimate food security - potatoes, corn, beans, squash, and eggs. Resilience here is broadly conceived and encompasses a full range of problems, from personal hard times such as injuries, family crises, financial problems, health problems, and special dietary needs (gluten intolerance, food allergies, carbohydrate sensitivity, and a need for weight control) to serious regional and global disasters and climate change. It is a supremely optimistic as well as realistic book about how resilient gardeners and their gardens can flourish even in challenging times and help their communities to survive and thrive through everything that comes their way - from tomorrow through the next thousand years.
