Growing Food in a Hotter, Drier Land by Gary Paul Nabhan
Respected and prolific Southern Arizona author Gary Nabhan's new book helps us come to grips with the vagaries of climate change. Filled with advice for gardeners, farmers and permaculturalists, Nabhan has brought together learnings and knowledge, not just from the Sonoran desert but from desert communities around the world. He addresses everything from plant selection and seed saving to water conservation, soil development, terracing and creating a vedge (vining hedge) to attract pollinators. As much of the country's agriculture withers under recent searing heat, there's much to be learned from Nabhan and the examples he provides.
