Gardening is on the rise as the desire for fresh, delicious homegrown vegetables grows. Growing your own vegetables is an easy hobby for a variety of lifestyles, as it doesn't take a large amount of space to yield nutritious carrots or lettuce.

This book will not only arm you with the knowledge you need to get started, but also provide experienced and budding gardeners alike with a source for inspiration while they enjoy the beautiful photographs and tips on garden design.

Ever wonder why some gardens and landscapes look dazzling year after year, while others decline? Or why does a planting look great at one location while the same plant looks skimpy and unattractive nearby? The characteristics of the site determine whether a plant will thrive. Site Assessment for Better Gardens and Landscapes describes how to evaluate site characteristics that are important to plants.

Intended for novice gardeners, experienced gardeners, and landscape professionals, the 81-page spiral-bound book includes 50+ color photos, a glossary, an index, and references and web sites for further information. Through 30+ hands-on activities, soil type, drainage, sunlight, compaction, slopes, minimum and maximum temperatures, wind, existing plants, wildlife and more are evaluated. When you've gotten to know your property using this book, you'll have:

  • A site sketch with information useful in preparing a landscape design.
  • A notebook with information collected during the assessment.
  • An inventory of existing plants including how they fit into future plans.
  • A checklist of important site characteristics.
  • A draft landscape design with a prioritized to-do list.
Completing a comprehensive site assessment should be the first step when you purchase a property, make changes to a landscape, or expand a garden or landscape into a new area of your property. The assessment can be done in a few weeks or over a longer time. Site assessment saves time and money, helps avoid future problems, and results in an easy-to-care-for, sustainable garden or landscape.

Perennial vegetables are a joy to grow and require a lot less time and effort than annuals. In this book Martin Crawford gives comprehensive advice on all types of perennial vegetables (edible plants that live longer than three years), including coppiced trees, aquatic plants and edible woodland species. Among the many advantages to growing perennial vegetables:

  • They need less tillage than conventionally grown vegetables, so the soil structure is not disturbed in their cultivation and carbon is retained in the soil.
  • They extend the harvesting season, especially in early spring.
  • They are often of more value to beneficial insects than are annual vegetables.
  • Many perennial vegetables contain higher levels of mineral nutrients than annuals.

What would it take to grow mushrooms in space? How can mushroom cultivation help us manage, or at least make use of, invasive species such as kudzu and water hyacinth and thereby reduce dependence on herbicides? Is it possible to develop a low-cost and easy-to-implement mushroom-growing kit that would provide high-quality edible protein and bioremediation in the wake of a natural disaster? How can we advance our understanding of morel cultivation so that growers stand a better chance of success?

For more than 20 years, mycologist Tradd Cotter has been pondering these questions and conducting trials in search of the answers. In Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation, Cotter offers readers an in-depth exploration of best organic mushroom cultivation practices, shares the results of his groundbreaking research, and offers creative ways to apply cultivation skills … whether the goal is to help a community clean up industrial pollution or simply to settle down at the end of the day with a cold Reishi-infused homebrew ale.

The book guides readers through both indoor and outdoor cultivation. Covered skills include:

  • Integrating wood-chip beds spawned with king stropharia into your garden
  • Building a “trenched raft” of hardwood logs plugged with shiitake spawn
  • Producing oysters indoors on spent coffee grounds in a 4-by-4 space or on pasteurized sawdust in vertical plastic columns

For those who aspire to the self-sufficiency gained by generating and expanding spawn rather than purchasing it, Cotter covers lab techniques, including low-cost alternatives that make use of existing infrastructure and materials.

Cotter also provides readers with insight into his groundbreaking research cultivating morels both indoors and out, “training” mycelium to respond to specific contaminants, and perpetuating spawn on cardboard without the use of electricity. Readers will discover information on making tinctures, powders and mushroom-infused honey; making an antibacterial mushroom cutting board; and growing mushrooms on your old denim jeans.

“This book is much more than a cultivation guide. It is about healing the people and the planet, one mushroom and one cultivator at a time, reversing destructive cycles into creative forces,” writes Cotter in the introduction. “If we think with an opportunistic yet minimalistic approach, much like a mushroom, taking what it needs to survive and then returning resources to its ecosystem so they can be used by others, the future looks like somewhere I want to be.”
