    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.

      Subject: [SACC-L] Permaculture book

      Bob Randall organized what has become Houston's premier community
      arden organization: http://www.urbanharvest.org/about/index.html
      f anyone knows of a way to use the book on community organizing as a
      ext, it might become a cheaper paperback..
      Bioregionalism, Permaculture, and Ecovillages
      Edited by Joshua Lockyer and James R. Veteto
      �The book is well structured, engaging and highly topical; it
      rings together a range of academics and practitioners�itself a
      otentially interesting and seldom examined dialogue�around three main
      reas which form the book�s structure: Bioregionalism; Permaculture;
      covillages.� � Malcolm Miles, University of Plymouth
      �This is an excellent and timely collection of essays by ecological
      nd environmental anthropologists and other scholars and activists
      ho, together, are redefining the field of human ecology as a
      ontribution to the cultural revolution the world needs, if we are to
      chieve the transition to sustainability.� � Laura M. Rival,
      niversity of Oxford
      ��a fascinating and significant anthology. The integration in this
      ook of theory and practice, scholar and activist, reprinted classics
      nd new essays, is very creative and admirable. It deals with three
      ontemporary subjects that have been rather neglected by researchers�
      t is current and futuristic in many respects [and] deserves a wide
      eadership.� � Leslie E. Sponsel, University of Hawai�i

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

      have a chapter in a forthcoming anthropology book (musings on 25
      ears 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
      here it might be used as a text. Thought you might know of someone??
      f there were, some valuable anthropology related to sustainability
      ight actually get out there more cheaply than $95.
