How to Have Your Yard and Eat it Too

MAR 14

If you're ready to take edible gardening to the next level, you'll find this book full of creative and easy-to-follow designs that guide you to having your yard and eating it too. Broken down into seven easy to follow chapters, each one focusing on a creative project from scratch and covering the ABC's of creating an edible landscape.

  • Herb Spirals
  • Food Forests
  • Raised Bed Gardens
  • Earthen Ovens
  • Uncommon Fruits
  • Outdoor Mushrooms and much more...

The colorful pages are filled with actual designs author Michael Judd has created and built over years of workshops, homesteading and running an edible landscaping business. Though geared toward suburbia and starting from scratch, the book's designs can be easily grafted to the micro-habits of the urban landscape, scaled up to the acreage of homesteads, or adapted to already flourishing landscapes. It's a tool to wield as your imagination feels fit.

Beautifully illustrated with more than 200 color photos and drawings, Judd takes you on a step-by-step process on how to transform a sea of grass into a flourishing edible landscape that pleases the eye as well as the taste buds. He translates the complexities of permaculture design and pattern use into simple self-build designs, gives full details of the evolving design process, the identifying of materials, and costs. He makes it clear that only a little elbow grease and desire to turn your landscape into something luscious and productive is needed to create your own edible Eden.
