Many people want to grow fruit on a small scale but lack the insight to be successful orchardists. Growing tree fruits and berries is something virtually anyone with space and passionate desire can do - given wise guidance and a personal commitment to observe the teachings of the trees. A holistic grower knows that producing fruit is not about manipulating nature but more importantly, fostering nature. Orcharding then becomes a fascinating adventure sure to provide your family with all sorts of mouth-watering fruit. The Holistic Orchard demystifies the basic skills everybody should know about the inner-workings of the orchard ecosystem, as well as orchard design, soil biology, and organic health management. Detailed insights on grafting, planting, pruning, and choosing the right varieties for your climate are also included, along with a step-by-step instructional calendar to guide growers through the entire orchard year. The extensive profiles of pome fruits (apples, pears, asian pears, quinces), stone fruits (cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums), and berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, gooseberries, currants, and elderberries) will quickly have you savoring the prospects. Phillips completely changed the conversation about healthy orcharding with his first bestselling book, The Apple Grower, and now he takes that dialogue even further, drawing connections between home orcharding and permaculture; the importance of native pollinators; the world of understory plantings with shade-tolerant berry bushes and other insectary plants; detailed information on cover crops and biodiversity; and the newest research on safe, homegrown solutions to pest and disease challenges. All along the way, Phillips' expertise and enthusiasm for healthy growing shines through, as does his ability to put the usual horticultural facts into an integrated ecology perspective. This book will inspire beginners as well as provide deeper answers for experienced fruit growers looking for scientific organic approaches. Exciting times lie ahead for those who now have every reason in the world to confidently plant that very first fruit tree!

God as a Gardener Exploring Plants in Bible Parables

Despite differences between God and ourselves, God yearns to communicate with us. In scores of Old and New Testament parables, God used plants to illustrate his nature, spiritual truths about his kingdom, and how he wants us to live. Yet, interpreting Bible parables illustrated by plants isn't easy. Twenty-first century society is far removed from the Bible's original audience. Because westernized individuals live in an industrial and technology-driven society, often contact with plants grown for food is second- or third-hand at best. We don't have an aha moment where we understand a parable by its comparison to a plant, e.g., a fig tree. God as a Gardener encompasses 24 parables illustrated by plants, 12 from the Old Testament and 12 from the New Testament. This Bible study is written for the average church member who wants to understand the message in parables, but, at the same time desires a Bible study with a unique perspective. The book meets both of these requirements. Further, each chapter contains a colored photograph of an original water-colored illustration of the parable's plant(s). Carolyn Roth is an award-winning biblical gardener and celebrated author of a book on plants of the Bible. I cannot think of a better person to be writing a book that is sure to capture the interest of millions of Christians who want to learn more about the Bible. Dr. Gerald R. McDermott, Anglican Chair of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School. The private and small-group devotional value of this volume is limitless, life-changing, and God-exalting.
