The Farm Desk Resource Library-
We are collecting books, seed catalogs, industry pamphlets, trade publications and agricultural ephemera. We will accept monetary or print donations to help us build the collections. If you are at a garage sale, antique swap, library sale or used book store and see something for the collection, please text the info to 562-528-6259…begin text with “book alert” and then the pertinent information and we’ll try to send a picker out to gather the bounty!
The Farm Desk Resource Library is being cataloged using Library Thing.
These are a few of my favorite things:
75 Exceptional Herbs is a beautiful book, full of vibrantly illustrated color plates. Extra special because I picked it up at Cornerstone in Sonoma with the sister-in-law, Kelly. It was a fabulous garden Show indeed!
Enlivened Rock Powders has some incredible science and history and appeals to my hippie upbringing. I am going to work my way through this book quickly and I can already tell it is one of those reads that opens a thousand new conversations. Picked up at the Eco Farm 2011, a wonderful experience and great memory.
Ah! The Backyard Homestead is my first backyard chicken bible and wheat field how-to manual. This has a little bit about everything you need to know to turn your home in to a homestead. A sentimental fave!!
