4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money!, 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: Guitar Gig Bag for Acoustic Guitar
This came exceptionally quickly!!!!! Literally had it 36 hours after purchase. Stunning!!!!

The bag is not quite as pictured, it has the phrase "Rock Star A Rock and Roll Lifestyle" written in relatively small plain white letters on the lower 1/4 of the front panel. It is neither striking nor annoying. There is also a zip pocket on the front panel.

The quality of the bag i would say is fair for the price. It is not padded at all. Overall i would reccomend this as a cheap dust cover and bag for occasional transport.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forest Garden Brilliant Book, 12 Sep 2009
This book is incredible. It is both a brilliant introduction to the theory of "forest gardening" and a practical guide to help you establish your own growing system in what ever size garden or space you have. It is layed out in a clear manner, and has detailed instructions. The book is also referenced very well.

The basic concept can be described as designing and caring for a garden in layers so that you may facilitate the 3D environment rather than the 2D lake normal gardening or commercial farming. It has great advice about the types of plants so go for, which ones to avoid putting together and some that complement each other. For example putting in an oak tree rather than a sycamore means more life is attracted to the garden. So even though the oak isn't a big food producer for the kitchen it attracts life into the garden making it more productive.

I'm a complete beginner to the concept and have found this book so incredibly useful. It certainly stokes the self-sufficiency dream!! The concept of forest gardening is so interesting, and definately play a role in the future production of food from this planet. It is a practical guide into the future, making it possible to produce more food from an area than you ever thought possible. I have even applied the concept to my kitchen window cill herb boxes!

I cannot reccommend this book higher, it will certainly be distributed around my family as christmas presents.
