      Bob Randall organized what has become Houston's premier community
      garden organization: http://www.urbanharvest.org/about/index.html
      If anyone knows of a way to use the book on community organizing as a
      text, it might become a cheaper paperback..

      ENVIRONMENTAL ANTHROPOLOGY ENGAGING ECOTOPIA

      Bioregionalism, Permaculture, and Ecovillages

      Edited by Joshua Lockyer and James R. Veteto

      �The book is well structured, engaging and highly topical; it
      brings together a range of academics and practitioners�itself a
      potentially interesting and seldom examined dialogue�around three main
      areas which form the book�s structure: Bioregionalism; Permaculture;
      Ecovillages.� � Malcolm Miles, University of Plymouth

      �This is an excellent and timely collection of essays by ecological
      and environmental anthropologists and other scholars and activists
      who, together, are redefining the field of human ecology as a
      contribution to the cultural revolution the world needs, if we are to
      achieve the transition to sustainability.� � Laura M. Rival,
      University of Oxford

      ��a fascinating and significant anthology. The integration in this
      book of theory and practice, scholar and activist, reprinted classics
      and new essays, is very creative and admirable. It deals with three
      contemporary subjects that have been rather neglected by researchers�
      It is current and futuristic in many respects [and] deserves a wide
      readership.� � Leslie E. Sponsel, University of Hawai�i


      Any thoughts? Bob lives and works here in Houston.
      I will pass this on...

      I have a chapter in a forthcoming anthropology book (musings on 25
      years of community organizing). See http://www.berghahnbooks.com/title.php?rowtag=LockyerEnvironmental

      The book may make it into a much cheaper paperback if there are place
      where it might be used as a text. Thought you might know of someone??
      If there were, some valuable anthropology related to sustainability
      might actually get out there more cheaply than $95.

      I have to mention Timber Press, for anyone who is unfamiliar with them - they produce a lot of quality books about horticulture. I also need to mention Turners

        I have to mention Timber Press, for anyone who is unfamiliar with them - they produce a lot of quality books about horticulture.
        I also need to mention Turners "Garden History", which now has a couple of sequels- Europan Garden History and Asian Garden History - which will appeal to any archaeologist, with schematic style site drawings.
