At this point am about halfway through, not that this is something to “get through”, the third section Soil, Climate. and Plants, and the first books have come in the mail. Not keeping track of the titles i have ordered it is like christmas opening brown packages and finding the treasures inside. In the mail today i found
Perennial Vegetables by Eric Toensmeir http://www.perennialvegetables.org/about/
Solviva by Anna Edey http://www.solviva.com/
Already having One Straw Revolution http://www.onestrawrevolution.net/
and Gaia’s Garden http://www.patternliteracy.com/
they won’t be coming in the mail.
The real point here is that if we all post the books we have or are getting as a result of our studies then things grow. Is there a list somewhere in a wiki that we can peruse and add to.
Another book i find very useful is
Energy and Form: Ecological Approach to Urban Growth by Ralph L. Knowles

Look in these forums for the Booklist Thread, the place to add any relevant books you hear about in the videos or that may follow on in train of thought or discussion. Just check which ones are already there so we do not keep adding the same titles like a dog trying to bite its own tail.
The Edible Forest Garden by Jacke and Toenmeir begins with some fine discussion of the goals of “forest” gardening and contains a wonderful “what if” scenario of “50 years from now” when most people in the suburbs have foodscaped their yards and things are looking much better. The authors do admit that it is anybody’s guess how much food could really be produced in such lots as there are not enough mature gardens yet to gather hard evidence. As the First Nations’ forest gardening in New Hampshire was said to only produce enough food for 100,000 people to live off, this points to the use of appropriate techology and use of the knowledge we have already obtained to adapt to the present and future needs of an increasingly populated world, not by interfering with nature, but by using its teachings to regenerate disturbed land with new managed ecosystems.2013-07-21 at 1:11 pm #21618
