Through a series of easy to follow step by step projects, this book will teach you the fundamental skills and techniques as used in many every-day baskets. Clear instructions and more than 280 photos and diagrams will guide you through every aspect. Projects include ‘your first basket’, a simple bowl; a log basket; a garden trug; a potato basket; and a foraging basket.This book is designed for the beginner. Everything you need to know is covered, including guidance on sourcing the willow either from a specialist grower, or the countryside. “Basketry is a rewarding craft. Being able to take some humble sticks and weave them together into a beautiful and functional item is extremely satisfying. Even after weaving hundreds of baskets, I still get a ‘buzz’ when finishing a new creation. The satisfaction doesn't stop there either, using your hand-made baskets for jobs such as picking berries or gathering produce from your garden, is a joyful thing.” Jonathan Ridgeon Note: The full range of projects are those pictured on the cover.

"The emotional effect of woodworking is that it gives kids that sense of accomplishment. Parents see a happy kid beaming with excitement of possibilities." -A woodworking teacher Three years back, I asked one child psychologist: What is the best way to make a connection with my 8 and 13-year-olds as they are growing up? I was worried about excessive exposure to T.V, Mobile Phones and wanted to do some activity together to be much of an enabler and guide. He said," Why don't you try Woodworking in your backyard? That would serve all your purposes. " That was one of the best pieces of advice I got off late. We hit it off and started with whittling, woodworking with just a wooden stick and a pocket knife. After that, we moved on to woodworking with multiple tools. The kids only used more straightforward tools, and I handled the complicated part. Safety was of utmost priority, and I always led with example. This book entails our journey with 31 Whittling and 20 Woodworking projects.

Even a quick walk in the countryside or Sunday stroll along the beach can yield the most interesting and attractive materials for making beautiful decorations for the home. In this book Becci will show you how to form simple wreaths out of foraged elements, with an emphasis on recycling and using sustainable materials. Basic techniques for a variety of seasonal projects are demonstrated, and these can then be used to create smaller garlands, such as napkin rings and candle table centres. Becci focuses on commonly found elements, foraging for plants and foliage and sourcing inspiration from nature; you don’t need to be a trained florist to design gorgeous wreaths and garlands for yourself or your friends. The featured projects will cover wreaths for all seasons, from scented lavender hearts to harvest festival straw circles, and we will explore how to make them from more unusual materials such as pool noodles. The emphasis will be on recycling too, so you will be able to create a garland that can be changed throughout the year to suit your decor and mood.

Learn how to fill forests with food by viewing agriculture from a remarkably different perspective: that a healthy forest can be maintained while growing a wide range of food, medicinal, and other nontimber products. The practices of forestry and farming are often seen as mutually exclusive, because in the modern world, agriculture involves open fields, straight rows, and machinery to grow crops, while forests are reserved primarily for timber and firewood harvesting. In Farming the Woods, authors Ken Mudge and Steve Gabriel demonstrate that it doesn’t have to be an either-or scenario, but a complementary one; forest farms can be most productive in places where the plow is not: on steep slopes and in shallow soils. Forest farming is an invaluable practice to integrate into any farm or homestead, especially as the need for unique value-added products and supplemental income becomes increasingly important for farmers. Many of the daily indulgences we take for granted, such as coffee, chocolate, and many tropical fruits, all originate in forest ecosystems. But few know that such abundance is also available in the cool temperate forests of North America. Farming the Woods covers in detail how to cultivate, harvest, and market high-value nontimber forest crops such as American ginseng, shiitake mushrooms, ramps (wild leeks), maple syrup, fruit and nut trees, ornamentals, and more. Along with profiles of forest farmers from around the country, readers are also provided comprehensive information on: • historical perspectives of forest farming; • mimicking the forest in a changing climate; • cultivation of medicinal crops; • cultivation of food crops; • creating a forest nursery; • harvesting and utilizing wood products; • the role of animals in the forest farm; and, • how to design your forest farm and manage it once it’s established. Farming the Woods is an essential book for farmers and gardeners who have access to an established woodland, are looking for productive ways to manage it, and are interested in incorporating aspects of agroforestry, permaculture, forest gardening, and sustainable woodlot management into the concept of a whole-farm organism.
