Description

Restoration Agriculture reveals how to sustainably grow perennial food crops that can feed us in our resource-compromised future.  

The restoration agriculture system described in this award-winning book works! It is possible for humans to produce staple foods using perennial agricultural ecosystems that actually improve the quality of the environment. This can be done on a backyard, farm, or ranch scale and is needed right now - on a global scale.  

Restoration Agriculture explains how we can have all of the benefits of natural, perennial ecosystems and create agricultural systems that imitate nature in form and function while still providing for our food, building, fuel, and many other needs. Using the restoration agriculture system, an oak savanna mimic will produce more than twice the number of edible human calories per acre as an average acre of corn, never needs to be planted again, prevents erosion, creates oil, and can be managed with no fossil fuel inputs. This book, based on real-world practices, presents an alternative to the agriculture system of eradication and offers exciting hope for our future.

Changed the way I will grow my food for ever!

I've been gardening for 3 years now and not a single person has changed my views like this author has. I will start a food forest of my own and try to inspire others!

Just bad woowoo bro science

Not good. No science-based info. Focus on feel good woowoo farming that us real farmers know is no walin the park. There is a gigantic body of scientific research on regenerative agriculture - use that.

I wasted my money

More of a manifesto, than anything. Short on hard data or citations. Uncertain how this is any different from permaculture.

Meh.

I was so frustrated by Mr. Shepard's pontification on the ills of society and how these are related to annual crops that I wrote a very negative review before. I've decided to go for neutral, because I didn't finish the book so I don't know whether he every started telling me anything that would be useful to someone interested in the practice of sustainable agriculture. The last 6 hours of the book may be awesome. I will likely never know.

brilliant eye opening perspective on agriculture!

anyone worried about agriculture practices and the environmental degradation that follows will be captivated by this book. Mark Shepard is permaculture farming on an industrial scale, his perspective on how to farm is truly unique. I have struggled coddling fruit trees but I am adopting the STUN method of planting and will definitely view and approach things differently after learning from this book.

Did not enjoy being lectured on global warming.

it was hard to finish. I love the ideas of putting trees in the ground and making things better in my small part of the world. I did not enjoy being lectured on how terrible we as a scocity are. stop lecturing just need the information to make my part of the world productive.

Excellent Exposé On Perennial Agriculture

I have treasured the value and power of perennials on our farm for a long time. However I have not taken the time to consider seriously how that might be expanded across our entire operation. This book provided that opportunity and important elements for implementation.

Fantastic resource

Inspirational, informative and just enough for basic to commercial.

Way to not sell anything; instead this resource asks the reader to question everything and not be satisfied with the current facade.

My next step is to write the author and personally thank him and his mentors for this wonderful book!

Thank you Mark Shepard and influencing team members!

Amazing and insightful

not only am I going to partially use this book as a guide for my future self sufficient farm but I would use it as a revolutionary solution to our growing agriculture problems. I would invoke any person whether backyard gardeners to large scale farmers to read and think about how the conditions of our annual agriculture system aren't getting better and the lengths we are taking to maintain it not only are damaging to our planet but to our health and well being and will not last forever. it's an ever growing world and we need to grow with it or end up like the dinos and fallen civilizations before us.

identifying problems but misidentifying causes

the author gets so close to the heart of the problem but just misses the target. much the same for a few of his solutions.

he identifies financial profit as being necessary to success but also seems to blame the greedy profit driven corporations to be responsible for the problems in big agro. but as he also seems to realize, it isn't the profit incentives, it's the subsidies. a corporation is harmless without government support. markets will destroy any corporation that isn't 'restorative' unless a government is there to prop them up and bail them out.

government is the enemy of sustainability and the future of restoration agriculture.

and those who wish to thrive in restorative ways must be so efficient as to out compete big agro even with their various hand outs and monopoly generating regulations. the solution is not to convince governments to embrace permaculture, this will only destroy it just as makes the author's bees and trees etc weak to spray them with chemicals and various inputs. to save agriculture and the world government and it's cronies must be out competed, defeated and otherwise made obsolete.
