Synopsis:

Edible Forest Gardens is a groundbreaking two-volume work that spells out and explores the key concepts of forest ecology and applies them to the needs of natural gardeners in temperate climates. Volume I lays out the vision of the forest garden and explains the basic ecological principles that make it work. In Volume II, Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier move on to practical considerations: concrete ways to design, establish, and maintain your own forest garden. Along the way they present case studies and examples, as well as tables, illustrations, and a uniquely valuable "plant matrix" that lists hundreds of the best edible and useful species.

Taken together, the two volumes of Edible Forest Gardens offer an advanced course in ecological gardening--one that will forever change the way you look at plants and your environment.

From the Publisher: "...But the book I will be keeping by me for the seasons ahead... is Edible Forest Gardens by Dave Jacke with Eric Toensmeier. In its way this book--the first of two volumes--is a sequel to the wonderful Tree Crops: A Permanent Agriculture (1929) by J. Russell Smith.... Edible Forest Gardens offers a vision of the garden that reaches well beneath its aesthetic surface and into its ecological depths. It reminds us that whatever gardens are an oasis from, they can never be an oasis from the natural world or our own underlying economic needs." --Verlyn Klinkenborg The New York Times Book Review June 5, 2005

"This is certainly the most thorough and realistic assessment of the potential for temperate perennial-based gardening that I have seen -- and I've read everything I've been able to find on temperate perennial crops, going back to J. Russell Smith and John Hershey...

The first volume of Edible Forest Gardens is a superb primer on ecology as it relates to horticulture in general, and I highly recommend it even for gardeners who aren't primarily interested in useful perennials..." --Greg Williams Publisher, Hort Ideas

Book Description Chelsea Green Pub. c. 2005, White River Junction, Vermont, 2005. Hardcover; Third Printing. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. First Edition. This is a large book and is not eligible for Priority, Air or International under standard fees. Binding and contents are almost like new. No DJ. (LR-3-D) . ; 8" x 10-1/8", XVIII + 377pp. Colorfully illustrated boards. GARDENING. "Forest gardening is an ancient practice, yet it also represents a radically new, postmodern way of seeing our home landscapes and our world. Taking nature as our model, we can grow different useful plants together in mutually beneficial groupings that are largely self-maintaining. Plants with edible, medicinal, and other useful qualities can combine to supply our daily needs, just as we support theirs. This volume begins with an overview of the ecological and cultural context for forest gardening in modern North America , offering clear and specific direction for the design and management of forest gradens. Case studies bring the authors' concepts to life. This volume concludes with colorful descriptions of forest gardening's 'Top 100' plant species. Most important, this book will inspire you with its vision of an achievable Eden - one that can be created in a rural field, a suburban yard, or even a vacant city lot. The ultimate goal of forest gardening is nothing less than re-stitching some of the long-broken threads of our native ecosystems, regardless of where we live. " Glossary. Extensive Bibliography . Index. Three pages of colorful Plant Hardiness Zone Maps. Scores of full-color photos. 25 Tables. Over 200 Figures. (LR-3-D) . Bookseller Inventory # 42405
