An essential guide to composting for all gardeners and environmentally conscious people This revised edition of The Rodale Book of Composting includes all the latest in new techniques, technology, and equipment. Gardeners know composting is the best way to feed the soil and turn food scraps into fresh produce, but even urbanites can get on board thanks to programs like compost pickup and citywide food waste initiatives—there’s no better way to reduce landfill waste (and subsequent emissions) and dependence on fossil fuels while nourishing the earth. The Rodale Book of Composting offers easy-to-follow instructions for making and using compost; helpful tips for apartment dwellers, suburbanites, farmers, and community leaders; and ecologically sound solutions to growing waste-disposal problems.
From New York Times bestselling author Kristin Cavallari comes a cookbook that reveals what she eats every day.

Connect with the earth and explore the outdoors with this enchanting cookbook from Fox Meets Bear blogger Johnna Holmgren. We forget that there is magic in food. We’ve lost an appreciation for how the ingredients we use came to be, how they grew, and where they were cultivated. In short, we’ve lost an appreciation for the earth. But Johnna Holmgren is here to restore that appreciation and help us create an adventurous spirit both in and out of the kitchen. She’s someone who goes straight to the woods behind her home for mushrooms and syrup and heads to her garden for tomatoes and fruits. Her cookbook is more than just a book—it’s an escape to another realm, a retreat into nature, and a taste of the life she lives. It brings the woods to a city loft and to the aisles of surburban supermarkets, with more than 80 unique recipes like floraled elderflower quiche, wild blueberry bee pollen scones, garlic scape wreath pasta, and a frothed reishi mushroom latte. Intertwined with photographs of foraging experiments, lush forest scenes, and whimsical illustrations, it wil linspire you to form a bond with the earth and the world around you.
Originally published in 1961 by the founder of Rodale Press, The Synonym Finder continues to be a practical reference tool for every home and office.

Rodale was founded on the belief that organic gardening is the key to better health both for us and for the planet, and never has this message been more urgent. Now, with Organic Manifesto, Maria Rodale, chairman of Rodale, sheds new light on the state of 21st century farming. She examines the unholy alliances that have formed between the chemical companies that produce fertilizer and genetically altered seeds, the agricultural educational system that is virtually subsidized by those same companies, and the government agencies in thrall to powerful lobbyists, all of which perpetuate dangerous farming practices and deliberate misconceptions about organic farming and foods. Interviews with government officials, doctors, scientists, and farmers from coast to coast bolster her position that chemical-free farming may be the single most effective tool we have to protect our environment and, even more important, our health.
