Human Gardener Book- In this eloquent plea for compassion and respect for all species, journalist and gardener Nancy Lawson describes why and how to welcome wildlife to our backyards. Through engaging anecdotes and inspired advice, profiles of home gardeners throughout the country, and interviews with scientists and horticulturalists, Lawson applies the broader lessons of ecology to our own outdoor spaces.

Detailed chapters address planting for wildlife by choosing native species; providing habitats that shelter baby animals, as well as birds, bees, and butterflies; creating safe zones in the garden; cohabiting with creatures often regarded as pests; letting nature be your garden designer; and encouraging natural processes and evolution in the garden. The Humane Gardener fills a unique niche in describing simple principles for both attracting wildlife and peacefully resolving conflicts with all the creatures that share our world.

Forged Steel Sheers- These forged carbon steel utility shears can be used in the garden, kitchen, office or studio. Chinese craftsmen originally created these as "bonsai scissors" hundreds of years ago. Thanks to their simple yet useful symmetrical design, they can be used by both right and left handed craftspeople. Although they were traditionally known for pruning small shrubs, we have found they are useful for nearly every task, including cutting weed cloth, harvesting herbs and flowers, and cutting twine.

Reusable Produce Bag-Plastic bags take anywhere from 15 to 1000 years to decompose. Only 1% of plastic bags are recycled in the United States (the rest end up in a landfill or the ocean). It is estimated that 1 million birds and thousands of turtles and other sea animals die each year from ingesting plastic bags. BUT one person using reusable bags over their lifetime removes 22,000 plastic bags from the environment. Our reusable cotton produce bags are organic and fair trade. Can be used to store produce.
