How to Grow Perennial Vegetables This is the latest offering from the prolific and encyclopedic Martin Crawford of the Agroforestry Research Trust in Devon where he has tested a huge number of plants of all kinds in his two acre forest garden, established 20 years ago. For a low maintenance, food producing design, such as a forest garden, perennial vegetables can provide an ideal understorey or ground cover accompaniment to a top storey of fruit and nut trees – and Martin has proved that there are a great many such plants available for all niches. The book's design is elegantly straightforward with the first quarter covering the practical issues involved, such as: the reasons for growing perennial veg; how to design them into a garden, and how to grow and look after them. The rest of the book looks at many perennials that can be used productively. As well as vegetables, also included are grains, tubers, aquatic plants and some vegetatively edible trees.

Sowing Seeds in the Desert: Natural Farming, Global Restoration & Ultimate Food Security Masanobu Fukuoka's first book, The One-Straw Revolution, introduced natural farming, a nature-integrated practice similar to 'original' permaculture, to a world where the environmental movement had just begun. As this plant pathologist-turned-farmer-philosopher journeyed around the world as a result of the popularity of his book and ideas, Fukuoka was shocked at the environmental degradation and desertification he saw. Sowing Seeds in the Desert, his final book, is his plan to set a 'Second Genesis' in motion: a green revolution led by vegetables, grasses, and trees. Natural farming isn't just another 'method' but rather a way of thinking and living that goes beyond even organic farming. Fukuoka examines science, economics, politics and medicine, arguing that humanity's quest for knowledge and wealth only increases the divide between ourselves and nature, resulting in illness, unhappiness and a deeply damaged planet.
