Publisher’s Description: 

Empowers readers with a toolkit of traditional and sustainable practices for an emerging artisanal crafts movement, and a brighter future. Alice Waters, chef and owner, Chez Panisse; founder, The Edible Schoolyard Project

Modern life is a cornucopia of technological wonders. But is something precious being lost? A tangible bond with our natural worldthe deep satisfaction of connecting to the earth that was enjoyed by previous generations?

In The Heirloom Gardener, John Forti celebrates gardening as a craft and shares the lore and traditional practices that link us with our environment and with each other. Arranged alphabetically, entries include heirloom flowers like beebalm, Johnny-jump-ups, and nasturtiums; traditional skills such as distilling, wreath-making, and brewing; and subjects such as ethnobotany, biodiversity, and organic gardening. Charmingly illustrated and brimming with wisdom, this guide will inspire you to slow down, recharge, and reconnect.
