Originally published as Waterwise Gardening. Four color pictures.
This is a guide to growing food with little or no irrigation. It was written entirely from personal observations and original research between 1979 and 1993 in western Oregon, where there is rarely any rainfall between June through September. It has broad applications to any place where the rains can’t be depended upon. There’s another facet to this book too. The current gardening trend is intensive, postage-stamp, high-yield, raised bed. This book explains the dynamics behind the absolute opposite of what everyone else is doing. It is extensive, low-yield, low-maintenance.
