Gary Romano of SierraValley Farms has published another book, “July and Winter: Growing Food In the Sierra” and we are now carrying it in our Wellness Department upstairs! This is a must have, as declared by Romano himself to be “his growing Bible”.
How to extend the season in our mountainous region, harvest tips, the pillars of building good soil, dealing with limited water, extreme weather and so much more! His introduction quote: “The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people can still plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world.” – Michael Pollan – The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals
Can you believe that it has been 10 years since Pollan’s local food game changing book was published?!?!
