New roots for agriculture by Wes Jackson( Book )

12 editions published between 1980 and 1985 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Agriculture is a problem--for all of us. The problem is not just agribusiness. It's not just agricultural chemicals. It's not just cities and highways ruining prime farm land. The way we farm now cannot keep feeding the world forever. That's the problem of agriculture. New Roots for Agriculture calls all agriculture into question, because the way we do it is not sustainable . Tilling the soil the way we do destroys its fertility too quickly. Agriculture needs a technical fix--a biotechnical fix. We can develop a sustainable agriculture based on crops that act like a natural ecosystem. And this could make it easy to solve many problems in agriculture at once. We could be on the threshold of a New Agricultural Revolution. That is what New Roots for Agriculture is all about."--Book cover

Nature as measure : the selected essays of Wes Jackson by Wes Jackson( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wes Jackson can teach us many things about the land, soil, and conservation, but what most resonates is this: The ecosphere is self-regulating, and as often as we attempt to understand it, we are not its builders, and our manuals will often be faulty. The only responsible way to learn the nuances of the land is to study the soil and vegetation in their natural state and pass this knowledge on to future generations. In Nature as Measure, a collection of Jackson's essays from Altars of Unhewn Stone and Becoming Native to This Place, these ideas of land conservation and education are written

Protecting public health & the environment : implementing the precautionary principle by Carolyn Raffensperger( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The movement toward creating more sustainable communities has been growing for decades, and in recent years has gained new prominence with theincreasing visibility of planning approaches such as the New Urbanism. Yet there are few examples of successful and time-tested sustainable communities. Village Homes outside of Davis, California offers one such example. Built between 1975 and 1981 on 60 acres of land, it offers unique features including extensive common areas and green space; community gardens, orchards, and vineyards; narrow streets; pedestrian and bike paths; solar homes; and an innovative ecological drainage system. Authors Michael and Judy Corbett were intimately involved with the design, development, and building of Village Homes, and have resided there since 1977. In Designing Sustainable Communities, they examine the history of the sustainable community movement and discuss how Village Homes fits into the context of that movement. They offer an inside look at the development of the project from start to finish, describing how the project came about, obstacles that needed to be overcome, design approaches they took, problems that were encountered and how those problems were solved, and changes that have occurred over the years. In addition, they compare Village Homes with other communities and developments across the country, and discuss the future prospects for the continued growth of the sustainable communities movement. The book offers detailed information on a holistic approach to designing and building successful communities. It represents an invaluable guide for professionals and students involved with planning, architecture, development, and landscape architecture, and for anyone interested increating more sustainable communities
