Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Noah's Garden shows us how the landscape style of neat yards and gardens has devastated suburban ecology. It kills entire communities of plants and animals by stripping bare their habitats and destroying their food supplies. Her book interweaves an account of her efforts to change her methods with an explanation of the ecology of gardens.

Synopsis:

Published to rave reviews in 1993, Noah's Garden shows us how our landscape style of neat yards and gardens has devastated suburban ecology, wiping out entire communities of plants and animals by stripping bare their habitats and destroying their food supplies. When Stein realized what her intensive efforts at making a traditional garden had done, she set out to "ungarden." Her book interweaves an account of her efforts with an explanation of the ecology of gardens. Noah's Garden has become the bible of the new environmental gardening movement, and the author is one of its most popular spokespersons.
