Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

Saturday, September 03, 2005


Any other paranoid Doomsday types out there thinking about self-sufficiency in light of our obvious dependence on others for food and fuel?

Here are some of the books on my shelves -- in no particular order because that's how my shelves are arranged these days -- that I'm taking another look at:


The Edible Landscape
Seed to Seed
Making the Best of Basics: Family Preparedness Handbook
Homesteading: How to Find New Independence on the Land
The Foxfire Book
Foxfire 2
Foxfire 3
Foxfire 5
Foxfire 8
American Red Cross First Aid Textbook
Month-by-Month Gardening in Florida
Collection and Cultivation of Medicinal Plants of Florida
Wild Plants for Survival in South Florida
Getting the Most from Your Garden
Folk Remedies of the Low Country
Camping and Woodcraft
Knots Ties and Splices (Irving)
Tracks and Tracking
Science of Trapping
Florida Gardeners' Guide
All-New Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening
Fruits of Warm Climates
Five Acres and Independence: A Handbook for Small Farm Management


Audels Electric Dictionary
Civil Engineer's Reference Book
Chapman Piloting

Also, here are a couple websites I keep bookmarked:

Heirloom Seeds
Murray McMurray Hatchery

A classical education is food for the soul. It took this wake-up call [post Hurricanes Katrina - Wilma] to remind me that the first education I want my children to have is how to provide food for their table.
