[back cover] The Shaker Book of the Garden For the modern-day gardener, the real interest in the Shakers lies not in their commercial success (they were the first commercial producers of species seeds in America) but in their spiritual and holistic approach to tending the earth. Fortunately for the contemporary reader the Shakers left a handbook outlining their methods and philosophy, which has been used as the base text for The Shaker Book of the Garden, along with a modern gloss on the proven benefits of gardeningand thinkingin the Shaker Way. Complementing time-tested, practical advice are wise words extolling the wisdom of the simple and sustainable Shaker approach to gardening and, indeed, to life. Charming, colorful illustrations interweave with the text and conjure up the atmosphere of Shaker communities. A facsimile of the 1843 edition of The Gardener's Manual gives the reader a direct link to this inspiring tradition.Harrison, Lorraine is the author of 'Shaker Book of the Garden With a Facsimile of the Original Gardener's Manual of 1843' with ISBN 9780764157110 and ISBN 0764157116.
