Part how-to, part personal narrative, this book provides a practical guide for creating native-species ecogardens and chronicles the author's 20-year journey of transcendental awakening. With the help of the greater community, a neglected five-acre condominium landscape is transformed into a stunning range of multi-seasonal prairie, woodland and wetland micro-habitats. Dennis Swiftdeer Paige's illustrated account describes this process of ecological reconciliation and traces his discovery of the higher self along the way.

Reviews

In Community Eco-Gardens, Dennis Paige asks us to re-evaluate our infrastructural aesthetic and grow to appreciate, find comely, and grow to love a diversity of free-living forms and arrays. He suggests we create places where it is not the specific plant we insert in the ground that matters, but the spawn of those plants that, with others and care, coalesce over time to produce a beautiful, healthful community of plants and animals. He proposes that a world of natural beauty and healthy soil, loved and intimately cared for, can once again allow the land to drink from the heavens, nurture life that bears tomorrows, and embed us again living beauty. If we take seriously Dennis's proposal our souls could learn to cleave to life and creation and our posterity might yet have another chance at Eden."–Gerould Wilhelm, Director of Research, Conservation Research Institute, Lombard, Illinois.
