Inhaltsangabe: This book is now also available in a greatly expanded Fourth Edition. See separate listing: Growing Food in the Southwest Mountains - A guide to high altitude, semi-arid home permaculture gardens. 4th Edition (2013)
Whether you are a weekend gardener who has never heard of permaculture, or an avid gardener using the permaculture approach, this book will help you grow food under the most challenging of circumstances. This book will teach you how to deal with dry weather, high winds, intense sunlight, cold nights, insect pests, and other challenges of gardening in the southwest mountains.
Includes beautiful illustrations by Zackery Zdinak as well as a planting timetable, glossary of lesser known food crops, and an extensive list of resources for gardeners. "Growing Food in the Southwest Mountains" will help you deal with local gardening challenges: Clay, sand and volcanic cinder soils that are very low in organic matter. A yearly average precipitation range of 18 to 25 inches (or less in drought years!).
Our high altitude provides us with strong sunlight, cold winters and large day-night temperature swings. Windy weather, especially during our spring and fall dry seasons. A number of local "pest" animals, birds and insects.
"If every region in North America had a handbook like this, we would be seven leagues ahead of where we now are in Permaculture education. The author and publishers are to be commended for creating a first-class resource."
-- Cathy Holt, The Permaculture Activist magazine, Winter 2002/2003
"Lisa Rayner's new edition of this little masterpiece provides you with principles for living and eating in harmony with northern Arizona's natural habitats. It is a primer on how to change our food production and consumption strategies to sustain the natural and cultural heritage of our region."
-- Dr. Gary Paul Nabhan, Author of "Coming Home to Eat: The Pleasures and Politics of Local Foods." (From the preface to "Growing Food in the Southwest Mountains.")
