Scientist and gardener Carol Deppe combines her passion for gardening with newly emerging scientific information from many fields — resilience science, climatology, climate change, ecology, anthropology, paleontology, sustainable agriculture, nutrition, health and medicine. In the last half of The Resilient Gardener, Deppe extends and illustrates these principles with detailed information about growing and using five key crops: potatoes, corn, beans, squash and eggs.

In this book you’ll learn how to:

  • Garden in an era of unpredictable weather and climate change
  • Grow, store, and use more of your own staple crops
  • Garden efficiently and comfortably (even if you have a bad back)
  • Grow, store, and cook different varieties of potatoes and save your own potato seed
  • Grow the right varieties of corn to make your own gourmet-quality, fast-cooking polenta, cornbread, parched corn, corn cakes, pancakes and even savory corn gravy
  • Make whole-grain, corn-based breads and cakes using the author’s original gluten-free recipes involving no other grains, artificial binders, or dairy products
  • Grow and use popbeans and other grain legumes
  • Grow, store, and use summer, winter, and drying squash
  • Keep a home laying flock of ducks or chickens; integrate them with your gardening, and grow most of their feed
The Resilient Gardener is both a conceptual and a hands-on gardening book, and is suitable for gardeners at all levels of experience. 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.
