How Can I be Prepared with Self-sufficiency and Survival Foods? 2nd Edition: An essential manual to help us survive in a Toxic World, Isabell Shipard
7 How Can I be Prepared with Self-sufficiency and Survival Foods? 2nd Edition: An essential manual to help us survive in a Toxic World
Isabell Shipard Australia David Stewart 2008 0975825232 / 9780975825235 2nd Edition Soft cover New Book 29.5 x 21.1 x 0.9 cm 
Isabell Shipard, one of Australia's most knowledgable and sought after authorities on herbs and author of the acclaimed books How can I use Herbs in my daily life? and How can I grow and use Sprouts as living food? says, "For many years I taught Herb Courses, covering many edible plants, and included a segment on survival foods and the importance of self-sufficiency for possible hard times. People often expressed that I should put this information into a book. With the economic squeeze in Australia, and severe drought experienced over large areas of farmland, just what will the future hold for average Australian families? Everyone is experiencing the pressure, as food, fuel and the cost of living has dramatically risen in price. In this 21st century we are seeing major disasters that are disrupting peoples lives in so many areas of the world. We must all be more conscious of ways to reduce, recycle, repair and reuse items and consider how we can all tread more softly on Planet Earth. What I desire is that all who read this book will be inspired and motivated to take action for the benefit of the planet." We believe the book, How can I be prepared with Self-Sufficiency and Survival Foods? will be a valuable reference manual for every person and family. This book offers encouragement about the importance of being as self-sufficient as one is able and an action plan to help you 'ride the storms'. Isabell shows us how to be prepared with a step-by-step emergency management plan for food provisions and essential supplies. We need to encourage one another to be as self sufficient as possible... now... in our gardens, as this is the most nutritious fresh food and and cheapest way to live in these times of rising prices. Growing our own food is very satisfying as well as beneficial to health and well-being.

15 Heirloom Vegetables: A Guide to Their History and Varieties
Simon Rickard Australia Penguin 2014 1921383062 / 9781921383069 Hardcover New Book 25.3 x 19.5 x 2.9 cm 
'Vegetables are masterpieces of human ingenuity - their pasts and futures are in our hands.' How often do you hear someone complain that tomatoes don't taste like they used to? It's becoming a common concern, as food production is increasingly controlled by multinational corporations more interested in profit than flavour. People who care about their food are growing their own vegetables in droves - and especially heirlooms for their wonderfully diverse flavours, shapes and colours. Not to mention their rich history and weird and wonderful names - who could resist a lettuce called 'Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed', not be intrigued by the potato that 'Makes the Daughter-in-Law Cry', or fail to be moved by the 'Cherokee Trail of Tears' bean? In this lively, passionate and at times political introduction to the world of heirloom vegetables, gardener Simon Rickard describes the history of many of his favourite varieties, encourages you to get growing yourself, and explains why he believes edible gardening is so important to our future - and the future of the planet. About the Author: Simon Rickard has been gardening since he was a boy. In 2001 he moved to Victoria to take a gardening job at the Diggers' Club flagship garden, Heronswood. There he set about renovating the herbaceous and annual borders and the grey garden. In 2002 Simon became Diggers' head gardener, overseeing both Heronswood and her sister garden, the Garden of St Erth. After three-and-a-half years living and working at Heronswood, Simon transferred to the Garden of St Erth where he worked as manager and head gardener until 2009. He is now a writer and leads tours to beautiful gardens around the world. He is also a bassoonist for Pinchgut Opera.
