Gary Paul Nabhan
Growing Food in a Hotter, Drier Land
Gary Paul Nabhan is one of the world's experts on the agricultural traditions of arid lands. Because climatic uncertainty has now become "the new normal," many farmers, gardeners and orchard-keepers in North America are desperately seeking ways to adapt their food production to become more resilient in the face of such "global weirding." Growing Food in a Hotter, Drier Land: Lessons from Desert Farmers on Adapting to Climate Uncertainty draws upon the wisdom and technical knowledge from desert farming traditions all around the world to offer time-tried strategies for a fast changing climate.

Tickets on sale now for a seminar with Bruce Piasecki, New York Times Bestselling Author of Doing More with Less and Doing More with Teams
5-7 pm, Friday March 7


Tickets are $5.00, and are good toward $5.00 off purchase of 
Doing More With Less: The New Way to Wealth on the night of the event.


Bruce Piasecki lays out, with wit and warmth, what he calls "the arts of competitive frugality." We all can learn to enjoy doing more with less. In the process, we will become like Ben Franklin all over again, frugal in a fun sense, inventive and diplomatic, rather than war-like and wasteful.


This argument builds from Bruce Piasecki's thirty years of experience advising some of the largest firms in the world, from Toyota and Wal-Mart, to Warren Buffett's Shaw Industries. But it also evolves from his love of books and from the literary tradition of self-determination, again as evident in the life and works of Ben Franklin.


The event will start at 5pm with a presentation followed by an interactive Q&A session. Bruce wants to learn as much from his audiences as he shares from his books. After the presentation the author will take part in a book-signing reception with light hors d'oeuvres served. 

The first 40 to enroll in this event will receive from the author a FREE SIGNED copy of his international book on globalized firms, World Inc, now available in paperback as The Surprising Solution. Books will be available to pick up at the event. More info.


Tickets are now available for purchase in our Saratoga Springs store.
