by Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ritar

The approach that Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ritar present in their book, Milkwood, is one that is often talked about but rarely lived out: Start with one thing. Milkwood is written from that perspective and the book is so much better for it. Tomatoes, mushrooms, beekeeping, seaweed and wild food are all covered. For each category, Kirsten and Nick share how we can cultivate skills for growing tomatoes and mushrooms, keep bees, and forage for seaweed and wild foods using practices that are in harmony with the environment. They have a gift for sharing information in conversational and connecting ways. An added bonus is that recipes are included at the end of each section. From start to table, they take you through each step.
