Will Bonsall’s Essential Guide to Radical, Self-Reliant Gardening

Will Bonsall’s Essential Guide to Radical, Self-Reliant Gardening

by Will Bonsall, 400 pages, 8x10, softcover. As a former apprentice of Will’s, I assumed his book would be a nostalgic journey but not especially enlightening. I couldn’t have been more wrong. What I learned working there was just the tip of the iceberg. There are enough gardening philosophies and techniques in this book to keep anybody learning for many seasons to come. Will’s book is the product of more than 40 years experience and it doesn’t waste time reiterating the basics. Instead, Will focuses on the approaches that are unique to his subsistence farm, and I bet you’ll want to try more than a few of these innovations at your place. Will has taken the process of composting and “turned it,” into an art form. But his composting system is just the beginning of a much broader radical examination of soil fertility and what truly qualifies as “sustainable” farming. Based on his idea of “eco-efficiency”, Will shares his wisdom about seed propagation, farm system design, growing staple crops like grains and oilseeds, and even food processing. To top it all off, Will’s incurable wit could make this one of the most entertaining agricultural texts you’ll ever read. -John Paul Rietz
