“ The Resilient Gardener is is the most comprehensive and detailed book about gardening that I have read
to date… full of details even the most experienced will find invaluable. ”
—Gene Logsdon, author of Small-Scale Grain Raising and Holy Shit: Managing Manure to Save Mankind

Sometimes Adversity Breeds Resiliency

F ew understand better than scientist/expert gardener Dr. Carol Deppe that the “best case scenario” rarely
exists in life. That very understanding drove her to write The Resilient Gardener. Deppe has celiac disease and
environmental allergies—forcing her to grow and prepare her own food.
The Resilient Gardener goes beyond traditional gardening guides, giving readers the tools to be self-reliant no
matter what the world throws their way. From global warming and natural disasters to food allergies and weight
control, The Resilient Gardner has it covered.
Deppe didn’t just write a book, she lives it every day – as she gardens for sustenance and breeds resilient variet-
ies that defy the elements. Deppe shares practical, innovative, and unique tips from her years of personal experi-
ence and courage.
The book is packed with expert advice on plant varieties and discusses the best way to grow, prepare, and store
five “key crops”—potatoes, corn, beans, squash, and eggs.
Beginner and the most expert gardeners will find this an invaluable resource, with new information, recipes, and
simple tips for self-sufficiency they won’t find elsewhere. At its heart, this is a realistic book about how resilient
gardeners (and their gardens) can flourish even in challenging times—helping communities survive and thrive.

Oregon plant breeder Carol Deppe has a B.S. in Zoology from University of Florida, a
Ph.D. in Biology from Harvard University, and specializes in developing public-domain
crops for organic growing conditions, sustainable agriculture, and human survival
for the next thousand years. She is author of Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties: The
Gardener’s and Farmer’s Guide to Plant Breeding and Seed Saving and Tao Te Ching: A
Window to the Tao through the Words of Lao Tzu. Deppe lives in Corvallis, Oregon.
