Working With Nature - Shifting Paradigms presents a new framework for making land management decisions. It describes ecologically sound soil and water management practices and introduces the concept of landscape health management. These are essential concepts in holistic land management.
This book is designed to be a resource for self study, and community and classroom education. It is addressed at all gardeners with an interest in horticultural science: landscape professionals, farmers, horticulture instructors, students and avid home gardeners. Even though this is a scientific text, it is written in plain language. A glossary and extensive references are provided at the end of the book.
