Winds sweeping through the Great Plains once robbed the Farm Belt of its future, stripping away overworked topsoil and creating the dreaded Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Today, those winds are bringing new hope to the declining rural communities of the central United States. Nowhere is wind’s promise more palpable than in Cloud County, Kansas, where the soaring turbines of the Meridian Way Wind Farm are boosting incomes and bringing green jobs to a community that has, for decades, watched its children drift away. In Harvest the Wind, Philip Warburg brings readers face-to-face with the people behind the green economy–powered resurgence in Cloud County and communities like it across the United States. This corner of Kansas is the first stop on an odyssey that introduces readers to farmers, factory workers, biologists, and high-tech entrepreneurs—all players in a transformative industry that is taking hold across America and around the globe. In this illuminating book, Warburg reveals both the remarkable growth of a breakthrough technology and the formidable challenges it faces. He visits epicenters of anti-wind opposition as well as communities that have embraced wind farms as neighbors. He guides readers through an Iowa turbine assembly plant that is struggling to compete in a global marketplace dominated by European and Chinese manufacturers. And he looks at the thousands of miles that wind-generated power will need to travel to reach American consumers. Harvest the Wind is an earthly antidote to loftier treatises on global warming and green energy. By showing us how practical solutions are being implemented at the local level, Warburg offers an inspirational look at how we can all pursue a saner and more sustainable energy future—while at the same time investing in the nation’s infrastructure and jumpstarting its economy.

How to Use:
Each container of Mockingbird Meadows’ loose-leaf tea comes with a reusable muslin tea bag, so you don’t need to worry about finding or buying a strainer. To make one cup of tea, add 2 to 3 teaspoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin strainer, and submerge the tea bag in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes, covered. Remove the tea bag, and enjoy. To make 1 quart of tea, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin bag and submerge in 1 quart of hot water. Steep, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Make your herbs last even longer by re-steeping each bag a few times before composting the spent material and then rinsing your muslin bag.

Most of us understand the value of eating and buying local. Taking back our food, goods and services from multinational corporations and sourcing them from small growers, producers, artisans and entrepreneurs benefits our families, our environment and our communities. Heal Local argues that "100-mile health care" can be equally valuable in terms of how we treat illness and injury and maintain wellness.
This innovative guide demonstrates that by harnessing multifaceted whole plants, we can rely on homegrown or regionally produced herbs, rather than importing exotics and non-natives. Based on the small apothecary model, author Dawn Combs explains how to:
Many herbals overwhelm their readers, presenting a list of hundreds of herbs, each with a different purpose. Heal Local empowers readers by showing that you don't need to know everything about every herb on the planet to create a complete home apothecary.
Anyone can be self-sufficient with their wellness, regardless of their previous knowledge, experience or available space.

The era of the penicillin miracle is over. Through our indiscriminate use of pharmaceutical antibiotics in hospitals and factory farms, humans have created "Superbugs" — tenacious and virulent bacteria that develop resistance to solitary antibiotic compounds at an alarming speed.
In this empowering book, Stephen Buhner offers conclusive evidence that plant medicines, with their complex mix of multiple antibiotic compounds, are remarkably effective against drug-resistant bacteria. You'll learn how antibiotic herbs such as aloe, garlic, and grapefruit seed extract represent our best defense against bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, and Salmonella — and how their use will ensure that, in the future, antibiotic drugs will still be there when we really need them.
