Last night, I mentioned to an acquaintance my attempt at vegetable gardening and my enjoyment of Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life, Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future by Bill McKibben and she recommended four books:
- Edible Forest Gardens: Ecological Design And Practice For Temperate-Climate Permaculture by Dave Jacke with Eric Toensmeier
- Edible Forest Gardens: Ecological Vision, Theory For Temperate Climate Permaculture by Dave Jacke with Eric Toensmeier
- The Clean Tech Revolution: The Next Big Growth and Investment Opportunity by Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder
- Crash Proof: How to Profit From the Coming Economic Collapse by Peter D. Schiff with John Downes
The last one seems a bit too fearful for me — I don’t think Armageddon is in our near future — but the others sound interesting.
Not sure if I’ll pick them up but I’d be interested in hearing what other folks have to say about these books!
