Tested Skills for Thriving in the Age of Limits John Michael Greer tackles energy, economics, technology and organic production practices with approachable precision … Interested in a real "Green Revolution"? Let Green Wizardry show you the way AND the why! Oscar H. Will III , editor-in-chief, GRIT Magazine, and author, Plowing with Pigs and Other Creative, Low-budget Homesteading Solutions In ancient times , a wizard was a specialist in unfamiliar knowledge - basically a freelance intellectual. Rather than magical powers, his main stock in trade was good advice supported by a thorough, well-rounded, practical education - in essence, the true Renaissance man. In Green Wizardry , Greer proposes a modern mage for uncertain times; one who possesses a startling array of skills gleaned from the appropriate tech and organic gardening movements forged in the energy crisis of the 1970s. From the basic concepts of ecology to a plethora of practical techniques - such as composting, green manure, low-tech food preservation and storage, small-scale chicken and rabbit raising, solar water heating, alternative energy sources, home-scale energy conservation and more - Green Wizardry is a comprehensive manual for today's wizard in-training. Providing a solid practical introduction to the entire appropriate tech toolkit, this book is a must-read for anyone concerned about decreasing our dependence on an overloaded industrial system and, in a world of serious energy shortages and economic troubles, making life a great deal less traumatic and more livable. Wanted: real wizards. Must be capable of guiding their communities through difficult times by exercising practical skills and applying down-to-earth knowledge of how things work… A magical career awaits you. Richard Heinberg, author, The End of Growth John Michael Greer is a scholar of ecological history and an internationally renowned peak oil theorist whose blog, "The Archdruid Report," has become one of the most widely cited online resources dealing with the future of industrial society. He is the author of more than 30 books including The Wealth of Nature and The Long Descent .
