9781603583992: Paradise Lot: Two Plant Geeks, One-Tenth of an Acre, and The Making of an Edible Garden Oasis In The City

When Eric Toensmeier and Jonathan Bates moved into a duplex in a run-down part of Holyoke, Massachusetts, the tenth-of-an-acre lot was barren ground and bad soil, peppered with broken pieces of concrete, asphalt, and brick. The two friends got to work designing what would become not just another urban farm, but a "permaculture paradise" replete with perennial broccoli, paw paws, bananas, and moringa--all told, more than two hundred low-maintenance edible plants in an innovative food forest on a small city lot. The garden--intended to function like a natural ecosystem with the plants themselves providing most of the garden's needs for fertility, pest control, and weed suppression--also features an edible water garden, a year-round unheated greenhouse, tropical crops, urban poultry, and even silkworms. In telling the story of Paradise Lot, Toensmeier explains the principles and practices of permaculture, the choice of exotic and unusual food plants, the techniques of design and cultivation, and, of course, the adventures, mistakes, and do-overs in the process. Packed full of detailed, useful information about designing a highly productive permaculture garden, Paradise Lot is also a funny and charming story of two single guys, both plant nerds, with a wild plan: to realize the garden of their dreams and meet women to share it with. Amazingly, on both counts, they succeed.

His current interest is in large-scale permaculture farming as a carbon-sequestering solution to climate change.

Revue de presse :

I devoured this book like a novel. It's not just a good gardening book but also a personal story and written in a readable style... It's about a forest garden, almost certainly the first and probably still the best example in North America... A goldmine of information." --Patrick Whitefield, Permaculture

"This is a really enjoyable read of the (mainly) triumphs and (few) setbacks that all innovative gardeners will experience along their journeys." --Agroforestry News
