Summary Ø E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Dave Goulson Dave Goulson ↠ 9 Read & download The Jungle Garden Review à 9 Done by gardeners who buy intensively reared plants in disposable plastic pots sprayed with pesticides and grown in peat cut from the ground Goulson argues that gardens could become places where we can reconnect with nature and rediscover where food comes from With just a few small changes our gardens could become a vast network of tiny nature reserves where humans and wildlife can thrive together in harmony rather than conflictFor anyone who has a garden and cares about our planet this book is essential readi. I was going to knock this book down a star because of the occasional unnecessary inflammatory comment I came to learn about gardening not to hear about your thoughts on the current American president BUT I cannot because overall this book was just too darn inspiring and interesting and I feel like it sort of changed my life It s not a perfect book I wish there were references included for the studies he discussed for example but it gets five stars based on my emotional responseDave Goulson is definitely my favourite environmentalist after reading two of his books in the last couple months He has two others and I can t wait to read them His writing is so engaging and funny Though he is a bee scientist this book is a broader summary of various gardening topics with a large focus on insects and bug life The book is his glorious manifesto on how backyardallotment a British thing gardening could save the planet While I m sure there s a modern farmer or two that would be highly offended by some of his assertions he makes a pretty compelling argument that large scale monoculture farming is not nearly as efficient as it is generally believed to be At the same time he is uite realistic and measured in his arguments overall even when taking on controversial topicsReading a Dave Goulson book will make you want to tear up your lawn and plant a wildflower meadow start growing all your own food and butcher roadkill on your driveway kidding sort of about the last one but this man is a ridiculous hero of the environment and I love it If you are a gardener and want to incorporate sustainable practices into your growing this book is necessary reading If not I d recommend A Sting in the Tale over this one for of a general interestscience memoir book that will make you obsessed with bees
