For our first book recommendation, we’re going with Restoration Agriculture by Mark Shepard. You’ll be hearing more from us about Mark Shepard and the incredible potential of his methods, for now, this book would be a great place to start.
“Around the globe most people get their calories from annual agriculture – plants that grow fast for one season, produce lots of seeds, then die. Every single human society that has relied on annual crops for staple foods has collapsed. Restoration Agriculture explains how we can have all of the benefits of natural, perennial ecosystems and create agricultural systems that imitate nature in form and function while still providing for our food, building, fuel and many other needs – in your own backyard, farm or ranch. This book, based on real-world practices, presents an alternative to the agriculture system of eradication and offers exciting hope for our future.”
Its not the easiest book to find and we’d advocate you support your local bookshop rather than Amazon but if you are really struggling to find a copy send us an email and we will see what we can do to help!
