Last minute gifts: Green Books (books)
In 1986, Satish Kumar, Diana Schumacher and other members of the Council of the Schumacher Society felt the time was right to launch a book publishing company that would help to spread Green ideas and practices. A limited company was set up, Green Books. Today Green Books want their books to reach many kinds of people – not only those who are already convinced that we need to change our ways of thinking and living, but also those who are looking for new ideas, approaches and information about how to live a more ecological lifestyle. Recent titles include Growing Self-Sufficiency, Martin Crawford's How to Grow Your Own Nuts, Community Energy: A Guide, Living on One Acre or Less, and Edible Mushrooms; A Forager's Guide.
