"The Resilient Gardener" Book Study - Chapter 8, 9 & 10

The Resilient Gardener is both a conceptual and a hands-on gardening book for all levels of experience. Optimistic as well as realistic, Deppe offers invaluable advice for gardeners (and their communities) to flourish.   Scientist and expert gardener Carol Deppe draws from emerging science in many fields to develop the general principles of gardening for resilience. Gardeners will learn through Deppe's detailed instructions on growing, storing, and using the five crops central to self-reliance: potatoes, corn, beans, squash, and eggs, as well as our garden favorites. 

 Learn how to:

  • Grow food in an era of wild weather and climate change
  • Garden with little to no irrigation or "store-bought" inputs
  • Garden efficiently and comfortably (even with a bad back)
  • Customize your garden to deal with special dietary needs or a need for weight control
  • Make breads and cakes from home-grown corn using original gluten-free recipes (with no other grains, artificial binders, or dairy products)
  • Keep a laying flock of ducks or chickens, integrate them with your gardening, and grow most of their feed

And more . . .

    I was on Carol Deppe's seed site again and noticed that she has her 2013 seed list out. There are some seeds on here that we discussed recently - Costata Romanesco, anyone?

    Great to me you, dawn. Feels like you've been a part of the group right along. I like how everyone's garden/chicken/duck experiences seem to address all the points we discuss. This is a very well rounded/grounded group!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
