The Shaker book of the garden

£50.00

Product description

The Shakers are noted among gardeners and farmers as the first commercial producers of species seeds. Today they are best remembered and respected for their holistic approach to tending the earth responsibly and reaping God's bounty. This unusual book presents modern advice on gardening, food preservation, and cooking, all based on Shaker doctrine and values. It also includes a "book-within-a-book"-an exact facsimile of the original Shaker Gardener's Manual, published in 1843 and retailed throughout the United States at that time for six cents. The Shaker Book of the Garden takes its enclosed 1843 edition of The Gardener's Manual as its inspiration, and reinterprets its text for today's environment-conscious gardener. It is enhanced with attractive full-colour native art, and covers topics that include:
* Tools * Nurture Your Dirt * Sowing & Planting * Pest Control * Harvesting * Preserving & Pickling . . . and others.

Here is a wonderful gift book for friends who are gardeners, as well as a fine book of advice on gardening that deserves a place in every home library. 70 charming colour illustrations.
