Lost Crops of Africa on

Indigenous plants are often overlooked by modern agriculture, but they offer a wealth of beauty, nutrition and adaptive ability to farmers. John found a trio of books on the native grains, vegetables and fruits of Africa, available to the public for FREE. You can read about them and find links to download these important resources for your library on John's blog, at

How to Order Ecology Action Publications

Since Bountiful Gardens closed in 2017 we are no longer able to fill orders for our publications for the general public. However, we are working to make all our publications available in electronic format, and hope to have the bulk of our booklets and papers for sale online increasingly during 2018.

To view a list of all the Ecology Action publications, click here. Those listed with links are available through Amazon, or other retailers. Those without links are only available through Ecology Action for workshop participants or interns. We are working to make electronic versions of our booklet series available for download online and anticipate that most will be available by mid-summer. We apologize for the inconvenience.
