      I though people might be interested in the following
      newsletter. It seems to have some interesting books.
      If you do buy one of the books could you mention
      Plants For A Future as we get a discount/commision.

      Appologies for a commercial posting.

      Eco-logic books Email Update:

      Welcome to the second attempt at sending the autumn newsletter from
      eco-logic. Should you have received this twice please accept my
      apologies - it is my inability to come grips with modern technology.

      We are inordinately proud of our latest arrival written and illustrated
      by Simon Hickmott.
      Step forward and take a bow Growing Unusual Vegetables. 96 fascinating
      vegetables that can be grown and eaten together with comprehensive
      cultivation instructions and fascinating stuff on the origin, history
      and uses of each plant.

      I like many things about the book (well you would say that you published
      it - ed) one of the main ones being that as the climate changes new food
      plants will be needed for the new conditions - perhaps the replacement
      for the potato or broad bean will come from the pages of this book. Also
      from a purely gastronomic point of view there are instructions here to
      grow plants that will never see the light of day on a supermarket shelf.
      Order it now POST FREE from the website:


      We get all sorts of stuff from all sorts of places about forthcoming
      events but this one caught my eye. 3rd December at the Prince’s
      Foundation in London. The Rachel Carson Memorial Lecture - Contaminated
      without Consent. Many of us faintly older eco’s were first made aware of
      the seriousness of ‘the problem’ and bounced into eco activism by Ms
      Carson astonishing book ‘Silent Spring’ (available from eco-logic books,
      natch). Go there, get angry and do something to remedy the situation.


      Also somewhere about the 21st of October is my favourite autumn knees up
      - Apple Day. As usual I will be out on the community orchard getting
      tired and emotional. This is the quintessential celebration of all
      things local. Raise your cider glasses to those tireless heroes Angela
      King, Sue Clifford and the persons at Common Ground. Check out the
      Common Ground site for a celebration near you.


      We have a great list of fruity books in the Orchards and Apples bit of
      our web site or you can email me and I will send you our extensive Apple
      Day resource list.

      Finally, due to the fact we have all been so busy getting the new
      catalogue organised the Summer Sale is still up there on the web site -
      but not for much longer - my next job is to take it down - so grab a
      bargain while you can.

      Finally, finally - please forward this email or our site address to
      anyone you think may find it useful, we find it is the best and most
      effective way to contact kindred spirits. Thanks a lot

      Happy scrotting
