'I worked many years for NASA and even helped put men on the moon, so the thought of sustainability has always been close to my mind,' says Elwood.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, less than one percent of Americans claim farming as an occupation. Author Don Elwood asks: what if America’s industrial agricultural production crumbles?

In his new book, THE VOLKS GARTEN, Elwood creates a survival guide for the modern American family. Because of this sharp decrease in new farms and in increase in current farmers age, Elwood aims to educate the reader on how to become self-sustainable by gardening.

“I worked many years for NASA and even helped put men on the moon, so the thought of sustainability has always been close to my mind,” says Elwood. “In modern day America, there are too many people who would not survive if the agriculture industry collapsed, so my book uses my own techniques for growing a life-saving garden.”

Using concepts of reliability, redundancy, synergism and symbiosis, THE VOLKS GARTEN introduces a 20-year-old triad of gardening techniques. Through subtle-energy techniques, recycled natural resources and open-pollinated plants in synchronization with God and our environment, this book depicts how to create a reliable garden at minimum cost.

“I want to remind America that there is no need to pay the organic store-grown prices,” says Elwood. “All that’s needed is two hands and a bit of faith to create an organic vegetable garden.”

Adding a bit of informative history, this book provides a rich history of farming ancestors. From tribal and Egyptian times to the Native Americans and God Kings, THE VOLKS GARTEN illustrates how the art of praying upon seeds, crops and the agriculture system has kept humanity fed for thousands of years.

Great for beginner hobbyists to farmers, THE VOLKS GARTEN will help each reader produce a fruitful and sustainable garden.
