When the inspiration hits to start an organic garden, many novices could benefit from a guidebook that speaks directly to their enthusiasm, their goals, and, of course, their need for solid information that speaks a newbie’s language—from the most trusted source for organic gardening methods. In Rodale’s Basic Organic Gardening, general garden-building skills (from "Do I need to dig?" to "Where do I dig?") and specific techniques (from "How do I plant a seed?" to "How much should I water?") are presented in growing-season order—from garden planning and planting to growing and harvesting. Many other need-to-know topics like soil, compost, seeds, pest control, and weeds are explained in simple language to ensure success, even on a small scale, on the first try. More than 100 common garden terms are defined, and Smart Starts sidebars offer doable projects to build confidence and enthusiasm for expanding a garden when a gardener is ready. A flower, vegetable, and herb finder highlights easycare plants with good track records. Plus, there are no-dig garden methods, simple garden layouts, and tips and hints inspired by the most popular page views on OrganicGardening.com. With a "no question is unwelcome" approach, a troubleshooting section lessens frustrations and encourages experimentation. Rodale’s Basic Organic Gardening is everything a beginning gardener (or one who’s new to gardening organically) needs to get growing and keep a garden going strong all season.

More than 80,000 new chemicals have been developed and released into the global environment during the last four decades. Today the World Health Organization attributes more than one-third of all childhood deaths to environmental causes, and as rates of childhood disease skyrocket -- autism, asthma, ADHD, obesity, diabetes, and even birth defects -- it raises serious, difficult questions around how the chemical environment is impacting children's health. Children and Environmental Toxins: What Everyone Needs to Know® offers an accessible guide to understanding and identifying the potential sources of harm in a child's environment. Written by experts in pediatrics and environmental health and formatted in an easy to follow question-and-answer format, it offers parents, care providers, and activists a reliable introduction to a hotly debated topic. As the burdens of environmental toxins and disease continue to defy borders, this book provides a new benchmark to understanding the potential threats in our environment and food. No parent or care provider should be without it.

An organic gardener all her life and a garden writer for more than 15 years, Ann Lovejoy began her foray into gardening by growing vegetables and herbs but soon branched out into making ornamental gardens as well. Today, her gardens combine plants of all kinds, edible and beautiful, in carefully arranged communities. Her garden designs and plantings echo the layers found in nature. Ann groups plants with similar needs, according to their roles in their native habitats, and encourages cooperative relationships between people and plants. In these pages, you'll celebrate the beauty of Ann's gardens and discover how to apply her organic design principles to your garden. You'll learn how to create healthy, self-sufficient gardens that are easy to care for, ecologically sound, and enduringly beautiful. Ann's own gardens contain thousands of plants, yet they require only a few hours a week to maintain. She started her garden school to help gardeners learn how to make satisfying, sustainable gardens like hers. Ann shares a lifetime's worth of gardening experience and teaches you how to transform your site, large or small, into a naturalistic garden filled with healthy plants. Along with the fundamental design principles that apply to every garden, you'll discover techniques and ideas for moving beyond the basics. You'll learn how to use space wisely, design interior flow patterns, choose regionally appropriate plants, and create an ambiance and mood in your garden that reflects your personal style. Ann also addresses practical questions that emerge as gardeners move past the beginner stage. The hands-on workbook section contains exercises to guide you through the process of designing a garden to suit your needs, helps you evaluate your site to maximize its potential, and offers valuable advice on creating plant combinations. Ann Lovejoy creates gardens with solid organic principles in mind: Make great soil and your plants will grow well. Create healthy, ecologically sound plant communities, and they will take care of themselves. She is frequently asked how she gardens so successfully. This book is her answer.
