Batteries have become a part of modern life. The number of products that rely on batteries for power is simply staggering. Everything from computers to phones to pacemakers has a battery as a power source. Many of these devices use batteries that are suitable for recharging. Recharging batteries makes both environmental and economic sense. By using rechargeable batteries there are fewer batteries going into the landfill. In addition, it makes economic sense to recharge batteries. Though the initial cost of a rechargeable battery is higher than a conventional battery, a rechargeable battery can take hundreds of recharges.
Battery chargers for these batteries come in all types and price ranges. Some are quite inexpensive, while others pack a much larger price tag. By the time you finish this basic battery guide, you should know what kind of battery is best for you, as well as the best charger to suit your needs.

Jessi Bloom and Dave Boehnlein, two dynamic leaders in the permaculture community, offer authoritative, in-depth, hands-on advice that shares a holistic approach to sustainable living. Permaculture is a growing trend, but still a daunting concept to many. New to permaculture principles and techniques? The guesswork will be eliminated by paging through this invaluable resource. Already an expert? This guide will surely make an important addition to your sustainable agriculture reference shelf.
Currently popular intensive vegetable gardening methods are largely inappropriate to this new circumstance. Crowded raised beds require high inputs of water, fertility and organic matter, and demand large amounts of human time and effort. But, except for labor, these inputs depend on the price of oil. Prior to the 1970s, North American home food growing used more land with less labor, with wider plant spacing, with less or no irrigation, and all done with sharp hand tools. But these sustainable systems have been largely forgotten. Gardening When It Counts helps readers rediscover traditional low-input gardening methods to produce healthy food.
Designed for readers with no experience and applicable to most areas in the English-speaking world except the tropics and hot deserts, this book shows that any family with access to 3-5,000 sq. ft. of garden land can halve their food costs using a growing system requiring just the odd bucketful of household waste water, perhaps two hundred dollars worth of hand tools, and about the same amount spent on supplies — working an average of two hours a day during the growing season.

It burns its supply of hydrogen, using the power of fusion, to radiate light and heat out into space. The earth soaks up only a small portion of this solar energy. An even smaller part of that solar energy falls on your house. The amount of solar radiation that lands on you house is minuscule in relation to the total amount of solar energy the sun generates. However, that power is still ample enough to power numerous solar power devices in the home.
The sheer number of solar powered devices for the home is staggering. From solar attic fans to space and pool heating the number of ways to utilize solar energy, appear almost endless.
Where do you start? This book should provide some of the basic information the homeowner needs to decipher some of the solar powered devices designed for the household. These devices range from items as simple as solar powered lights to complex systems designed to power an entire house.
The purpose of this book is to provide the average homeowner with the basic information about the various solar devices available. This is not a technical guide. Rather use it as a “discovery resource” to explore the various solar products on the market for the home. It should help you determine how you might best use solar energy to bring the power of the sun into your house.

Imagine growing vegetables that require just about the same amount of care as the flowers in your perennial beds and borders—no annual tilling and potting and planting. They thrive and produce abundant and nutritious crops throughout the season. It sounds too good to be true, but in Perennial Vegetables author and plant specialist Eric Toensmeier (Edible Forest Gardens) introduces gardeners to a world of little-known and wholly underappreciated plants. Ranging beyond the usual suspects (asparagus, rhubarb, and artichoke) to include such "minor" crops as ground cherry and ramps (both of which have found their way onto exclusive restaurant menus) and the much sought after, anti-oxidant-rich wolfberry (also known as goji berries), Toensmeier explains how to raise, tend, harvest, and cook with plants that yield great crops and satisfaction.
Perennial vegetables are perfect as part of an edible landscape plan or permaculture garden. Profiling more than 100 species, illustrated with dozens of color photographs and illustrations, and filled with valuable growing tips, recipes, and resources, Perennial Vegetables is a groundbreaking and ground-healing book that will open the eyes of gardeners everywhere to the exciting world of edible perennials.
