Summary

A renowned landscape gardener’s guide to less expensive, less water-intensive lawns, whether it’s a front yard or a fairway.A lush green lawn is one of the great pleasures of the natural world, whether it’s outside your front door or on a majestic fairway at a legendary golf course. But anyone who’s tried to grow the perfect lawn the conventional way knows it requires an endless cycle of watering and applying synthetic fertilizers and toxic chemical pesticides that costs a lot of money and kills all the life in the soil, on the surface, and on the grass. Fortunately, there’s a better way. Organic lawn care is not only healthier for the environment, it’s actually cheaper and less water-intensive, whether you’re managing a small yard or acres of turf. In this book, Howard Garrett, the renowned “Dirt Doctor,” takes you step-by-step through creating and maintaining turf organically. He begins with the soil, showing you how to establish a healthy habitat for grass. Then he discusses a variety of turfgrasses, including Bermudagrass, bluegrass, buffalo grass, fescue, ryegrass, St. Augustine, and zoysia. He explains in detail planting, mowing, watering, fertilizing, composting, and managing weeds and pests. And he offers alternatives to lawn grasses and turf, describing the situations in which they might be your best choice.

    Dear readers, 
    We write to you with an urgent call to immerse yourself in the pages of "Silenced Voices: Testimonies of Life in Palestine." This book is much more than a set of stories; It is a bridge connecting distant realities and a window to the profound experiences of life in Palestine, a place where voices have historically been silenced. 
    Each page of this book offers a unique opportunity to understand the complexity of Palestinian history, from roots and identity to resilience, childhood, women, memories of the land, and reflections toward the future. It is an invitation to look beyond conventional narratives, to listen to individual voices that have been eclipsed by the noise of conflict and geopolitical tensions. 
    By reading "Silenced Voices," you will help challenge stigmas and prejudices, humanize the experiences of those who have faced unimaginable challenges, and build bridges of understanding. This book is a call to action, a reminder of the importance of empathy and solidarity in building a more just world. 
    We encourage you to share this call to action with friends, family, and communities. Invite them to join this journey of knowledge and understanding, so that together we can amplify these silenced voices and contribute to a more informed dialogue about the reality in Palestine. 
    Let us not allow these voices to remain silent. Let's make "Silenced Voices" a catalyst for change, a tool for education and an inspiration for action. Reading this book will not only enrich your perspective, but will also be an act of solidarity with those whose stories deserve to be heard.

    An essay collection chronicling how knitters have turned to needlework to get through difficulties both personal and historical. 
     
    Most knitters know: Getting through a difficult time often means knitting through it. It’s this home truth—and all the homespun wisdom behind it—that comes through clearly in the writings gathered in this book. 
     
    These pieces—some by contemporary writers like Donna Druchunas and Sherri Wood, others excerpted from the WPAs Federal Writers Project—tell stories of knitting through adversity as widespread as war or the Great Depression, as personal as political anxiety, as unyielding as a prison term, and as tenacious as the hardships endured by the Native American community over centuries. 
     
    Men and women, young and old, rural and urban, white and black—their knitting narratives are poignant, often lyrical, rich with personal and cultural history and vivid imagery. They conjure hardscrabble lives and immigrant experience, the work of anxious hands kept busy creating warmth and beauty or earning desperately needed money. Along with the stories from the WPA project, the book features black and white photographs from the Library of Congress archives, as well as a sampling of patterns to help knitters through their own difficult times.
