 image a basket of vegetables

 Planting season is coming up! Get a head start on your small-scale herb or kitchen garden with resources from Booth. 

 

Several Books on gardening, both small and larger scale are listed below. Additionally we have many DVDs related to food, gardening, and sustainable agriculture.

Gardens of DestinyS605.5 .G38 2010x .DVD
Dan Jason is an organic gardener and the head of the Seed and Plant Sanctuary for Canada. This film explores Dan’s garden and seed world and investigates such issues as genetic engineering, terminator seeds, and the pitfalls of industrial agriculture in North America. The film offers several easy solutions for citizens and governments in the United States and Canada, including supporting organic growers and starting your own organic garden.

New Farms, Big Success — S494.5.S86 N49 2014x .DVD
This documentary presents three, ecologically responsible farms in the USA and Canada. Their unique business plans eliminate the middle man, use sustainable methods and few fossil fuels and show a decent living can be made! With participation of leading environmentalist, educator, Bill McKibben, the film provides critical information to develop an enduring, local food network in a time of climate change and includes the official point of view of The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the UN office specialized in the protection of life on earth, about the links between climate change, biodiversity and farming.

Fresh Food: what is farm to table? — S494.5.S86 F738 2011x .DVD
The basics of sustainable farming and locally grown foods are explored through the eyes of three chefs who have left big city jobs to grow fresh, healthy ingredients for their gourmet dishes. The video follows the chefs as they establish a farm complete with vegetables, fruits, herbs, chickens, cows, and pigs–and without fertilizers, pesticides, or hormones. After a brief history of American farming, viewers see how the chefs created and market their farm, learn the differences and similarities between sustainable and organic farming, and discover how fresh food travels from farm to table.
