    […] Yard Work « Destin Ron & Aileen Designing California Native Gardens: The Plant Community Approach to Artful, Ecological GardensInspirational, practical, and easy to use, this book was created with the aim of conveying the awesome diversity and beauty of California's native plants and demonstrating how they can be brought into ecologically sound, attractive, workable, and artful gardens. Structured around major California plant communities–bluffs, redwoods, the Channel Islands, coastal scrub, grasslands, deserts, oak woodlands, mixed evergreen woodlands, riparian, chaparral, mountain meadows, and wetlands–the book's twelve chapters each include sample plans for a native garden design accompanied by original drawings, color photographs, a plant list, tips on successful gardening with individual species, and more. Both residential and professional gardeners will learn the benefits of going native with gardens that require less water and fewer fertilizers, attract wildlife, engage the senses, create a sense of place, and, at the same time, preserve our rich natural heritage. Designing Native California Gardens includes:* More than 600 selected native species recommended for the garden* More than 300 photographs of native plants, natural plant communities, and residential native gardens* Recommended places to visit for viewing each plant community$29.95Food Not Lawns: How to Turn Your Yard into a Garden And Your Neighborhood into a CommunityGardening can be a political act. Creativity, fulfillment, connection, revolution—it all begins when we get our hands in the dirt. Food Not Lawns combines practical wisdom on ecological design and community-building with a fresh, green perspective on an age-old subject. Activist and urban gardener Heather Flores shares her nine-step permaculture design to help farmsteaders and city dwellers alike build fertile soil, promote biodiversity, and increase natural habitat in their own "paradise gardens." But Food Not Lawns doesn’t begin and end in the seed bed. This joyful permaculture lifestyle manual inspires readers to apply the principles of the paradise garden—simplicity, resourcefulness, creativity, mindfulness, and community—to all aspects of life. Plant "guerilla gardens" in barren intersections and medians; organize community meals; start a street theater troupe or host a local art swap; free your kitchen from refrigeration and enjoy truly fresh, nourishing foods from your own plot of land; work with children to create garden play spaces. Flores cares passionately about the damaged state of our environment and the ills of our throwaway society. In Food Not Lawns, she shows us how to reclaim the earth one garden at a time.$25.00 Posted in Garden Lovers Supplies | Tags: Aileen, Bikini Girls, Blade, Blender, Blog Archive, Car Charger, Cigarette Lighter Adapter, Coincidence, Community Blog, Community Garden, Gasket, Google, Grass, Lawn Mower, Lawnmower, Lighter, Little Flowers, Machine Guns, Nexus, Sears, Sotm, Wd 40, Weeds, Yardwork […]
