We're grateful for several resources that continue to spark our imaginations in regards to land stewardship. The following are businesses we support, a few places where we source our materials, and many authors that invigorate our passion for this field.

Wes Jackson's brainchild, The Land Institute, is an incredible resource for those interested in agricultural sustainability. The institute devotes attention to issues of world hunger, distribution, and respect for land, and works towards a new agricultural model that is remarkably similar to the old one.

H.C. Flores is another Goddard alum who sees plants and land as creative mediums, while prioritizing sustainability.

Gene Logsdon is a prolific writer and intriguing thinker on agriculture and the cultural implications of returning to small, family-run farms.

Wendell Berry has been a longstanding influence on both our imaginations and our practical attitudes towards harmonious relationships with land.

Mike McGrath is silly and sage. Given that he's in the tri-state area, he's an even more valuable resource for us and our customers. He knows this region, its weather patterns, and possibilities for growth.

We absolutely love Arundhati Roy. Not only is she a poetic and profound author, but she is actively involved in campaigns that prioritize land, agriculture, and sustainability. These movements are often intrinsically related to work against poverty and towards elevating respect for women's lives. That intersection is powerful and beautiful.

Alice Walker's novels are fantastic. The fact that land and plants are such prevalent characters inspires us continually.

“The Poisonwood Bible” captivated us from first to last page. Subsquent works, like “Prodigal Summer” and “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” were instrumental as we considered Rooted Landscaping and our own evolving garden.
