The New Victory Garden:  If you can grow mushrooms, you can raise your own organic vegetables in a Square Foot Garden.  It is easy and fun for the family, and kids love it!  The same amount of vegetables, greens, herbs, and flowers grow prolifically in one-fifth the area, using one-fifth the labor and one-fifth the water of a traditional garden. Combined with Lasagna Gardening results in a Square Foot Lasagna garden, which doesn’t require turning compost. We have both books!

Check out our Straw-Insulated Solar Greenhouse do-it-yourself plans. Ideal for Square Foot Lasagna raised grow beds, and for growing mushrooms year ’round.  A great way to prepare for climate change and begin the learning curve to growing your own food. Relax among organic flowers, vegetables, fruits, and mushrooms in your own created temperate climate, protected from storms, sun, droughts, and cold. In a greenhouse you can plant the seeds outdoors to reduce transplanting. And you can beat the deer, rabbits, and squirrels to the tomatoes!

Concerned about global warming? Growing trees and using biochar in the garden sequesters atmospheric CO2 in solid form. Biochar, charcoal aged in a compost pile, is the key to “terra preta” the richest soil on earth.  Biochar stays in the ground for hundreds of years and permanently improves soil fertility, tilth, and water retention – perfect for Square Foot Lasagna gardening. The Biochar Solution by Albert Bates is part a historical epic, part practical technology, and the best guide to regreening the planet.
