The Heirloom Gardener: Traditional Plants and Skills for the Modern World by John Forti (Portland, OR : Timber Press, 2021).

John Forti is a nationally recognized lecturer, garden historian, ethnobotanist, garden writer and Director of Bedrock Gardens in Lee, NH.

"Modern life is a cornucopia of technological wonders. But is something precious being lost? A tangible bond with our natural world—the deep satisfaction of connecting to the earth that was enjoyed by previous generations?

In 'The Heirloom Gardener', John Forti celebrates gardening as a craft and shares the lore and traditional practices that link us with our environment and with each other. Charmingly illustrated and brimming with wisdom, this guide will inspire you to slow down, recharge, and reconnect." --Publisher's blurb
