A New Garden Ethic by Benjamin Vogt Pdf

In a time of climate change and mass extinction, who we garden for matters more than ever Our landscapes push aside wildlife and in turn diminish our genetically-programmed love for wildness. How can we get ourselves back into balance through gardens, to speak life's language and learn from other species? Plenty of books tell home gardeners and professional landscape designers how to garden sustainably, what plants to use, and what resources to explore. Yet few examine why our urban wildlife gardens matter, and not just for ourselves, but for the larger human and animal communities. Author Benjamin Vogt addresses why we need a new garden ethic, and why we urgently need wildness in our daily lives — lives sequestered in buildings surrounded by monocultures of lawn and concrete that significantly harm our physical and mental health. He examines the psychological issues around climate change and mass extinction as a way to understand how we are short circuiting our response to global crises, especially by not growing native plants in our gardens. Simply put, environmentalism is not political, it's social justice for all species marginalized today and for those facing extinction tomorrow. By thinking deeply and honestly about our built landscapes, we can create a compassionate activism that connects us more profoundly to nature and to one another.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt Pdf

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “Elegant and wicked.... [This] might be the first true-crime book that makes the reader want to book a bed and breakfast for an extended weekend at the scene of the crime." —The New York Times Book Review Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.

Tales from the Gardens and Beyond by Hazelle Palmer Pdf

"Tales from the Garden and Beyond by Hazelle Palmer is a symphony of these oppositional voices. It is a collection of African-Caribbean women's voices raised in protest, triumph, and adversity as they speak [End Page 156] of their experiences in Barbados and Canada. The novel is built around Esmée or Ms. G., who escaped to Montreal from an abusive husband in Barbados. Beginning with Esmée's tale of how she escaped her husband and came to Canada, she tells of her encounters with the poverty and hostility that has come to characterize her experience in Montreal. In "The Gardens," an inner-city community inhabited by Caribbean migrants, Esmée is able to cultivate warm friendships and nurturing relationships with other Caribbean women. Tales is something of a fictional oral history of the women in this working class community, each offering a different perspective on her life in "The Gardens" and beyond."--from "I Suck Coarse Salt": Caribbean Women Writers in Canada and the Politics of Transcendence, Meredith M. Gadsby.

Beyond the Secret Garden by Ann Thwaite Pdf

The definitive and revealing biography of the author of The Secret Garden. Frances Hodgson Burnett’s favourite theme in her fiction was the reversal of fortune, and she herself knew extremes of poverty and wealth. Born in Manchester in 1849, she emigrated with her family to Tennessee because of the financial problems caused by the cotton famine. From a young age she published her stories to help the family make ends meet. Only after she married did she publish Little Lord Fauntleroy that shot her into literary stardom. On the surface, Frances’ life was extremely successful: hosting regular literary salons in her home and travelling frequently between properties in the UK and America. But behind the colourful personal and social life, she was a complex and contradictory character. She lost both parents by her twenty-first birthday, Henry James called her "the most heavenly of women" although avoided her; prominent people admired her and there were many friendships as well as an ill-advised marriage to a much younger man that ended in heartache. Her success was punctuated by periods of depression, in one instance brought on by the tragic loss of her eldest son to consumption. Ann Thwaite creates a sympathetic but balanced and eye-opening biography of the woman who has enchanted numerous generations of children.

The Garden of Eden and Beyond by Don Legler Pdf

Have you wondered about life after the events in the Book of Genesis took place? Are you interested in the early church and its growth? Do you like quests and intriguing plots? If so, The Garden Of Eden And Beyond is the book for you. Noah, Abram and others listened and responded when God spoke. Key elements of life B.C.E. shift to a drama on the world stage in 1000 A.D. as a contentious world emerges from the "Dark Ages." Sten, the shepherd son of a Viking father and an Arabic mother, finds an altarpiece that facilitates relationships with the Lord. Sten is forced to become a warrior in the Caliph's army; but he and his wife, Janna, become Christians and guiding lights in molding a better world. God's plan leads them to become role models in adventures through Byzantium, Mesopotamia, Norway, England, and the New World. This novel moves through time and space and, although fictitious, is replete with historical facts. Don Legler spent ten years as a Methodist minister serving small rural churches in Florida. With a M.Div. degree from Emory University and a M.Th. degree from Garrett Seminary, he authored over 500 sermons. Holding B.S., D.D.S., and Ph.D. degrees, Don had a professional career in dental education and research with over fifty professional and scientific publications. His travels and observations in Norway, Sweden, and Iraq provided the stimulus for writing this novel. He observed the roles these countries played in the spread of Christianity throughout history and was impressed to still see remnants of Christian churches among the ruins of ancient Babylon and Ur. Thus the stage was set in 1000 A.D. for this moving story of characters seeking to sustain their Christian faith and fulfill God's plan for their lives.

Another World Lies Beyond by T. June Li Pdf

From the Lake of Reflected Fragrance to the Pavilion for Washing Away Thoughts to the Isle of Alighting Geese, this gorgeously illustrated volume explores the Huntington's Chinese Garden—Liu Fang Yuan, or the Garden of Flowing Fragrance—one of the largest such gardens outside China. With the first phase of construction completed, the garden opened to visitors in early 2008. It resembles those created in seventeenth-century Suzhou, offering awe-inspiring views and architecture and evoking an era when scholars sought quiet, intimate gardens in which to retreat, write poetry, and practice calligraphy, among many other pursuits. The contributors to Another World Lies Beyond discuss the challenges of constructing the garden in Southern California as well as the cultural traditions and aesthetics of Chinese garden design, especially the ways in which the plants and structures engage the imagination of visitors. Inscribed poetic couplets, literary allusions, botanical motifs, and evocative names for structures reveal layers of symbolism for exploration and interpretation. The volume's final essay describes how plants that originated in China—such as the chrysanthemum, the plum, and the camellia—have shaped that country's ancient botanical heritage and have enriched the gardens of both East and West.
