Deep Rooted Wisdom is a plea for us to take gardening back from the marketing companies and to return to traditional-organic gardening, told through stories of old gardeners, farmers, and country people. Gardening used to be a simple and sincere part of life. It was done to feed the body and soul, and it was a part of caring for the earth. It’s changed drastically. It’s become more of a style competition or a shopping experience. And it’s contributing to the problems of pollution and resource waste. Building on old-school lessons, Jenks Farmer weaves stories from wise gardeners with the most modern science and artful design toward gardening and living more gently for the earth and ourselves.
