Scientist/gardener Carol Deppe combines her passion for gardening with newly emerging scientific information from many fields climatology, ecology, anthropology, sustainable agriculture, nutrition, and health science. In The Resilient Gardener, Deppe extends these principles with detailed information about growing and using five keystone crops that are especially important for anyone seeking greater self-reliance: potatoes, corn, beans, squash, and eggs.
From the Publisher:
Presents advice for growing vegetables that can help families survive financial, health, dietary, and weather challenges, including author's experiences, gardening and storage techniques, and recipes for five crops with storage and nutritional values.
Annotation:
Combining scientific research, personal experience, and a concern for the future of safe and healthy food supplies in a changing global environment, the author has produced a gardening book to meet the needs of anyone wanting to create a sustainable source of basic, nutritionally sound food. She focuses on five crops--really, four crops (beans, corn, potatoes, and squash) plus eggs--and carefully guides the reader through every stage from choosing seeds to storing the food that is ultimately produced. Determined to help people create "resilient" gardens, the author offers suggestions for coping with bad weather, poor irrigation, unexpected periods of neglect (due to illness, financial struggles, travel), and many other problems without losing her optimism.
