Climate-wise Landscaping: Practical Actions for a Sustainable Future by Sue Reed and Ginny Stibolt

Climate-Wise Landscaping presents hundreds of practical actions to help homeowners and gardeners shrink the carbon footprint of every landscape, and create yards that will flourish in new, challenging conditions. Ideal for homeowners, gardeners, and landscape professionals who want to be part of the solution to climate change.

The Ever Curious Gardener: Using a Little Natural Science for a Much Better Garden by Lee Reich

The Ever Curious Gardener is an irreverent romp through the natural science of plants. Ideal for gardeners moving beyond back-of-the-seed-pack planting, it digs into the science “behind the scenes” in the garden. Acclaimed gardener, scientist, and author Lee Reich offers eye-opening insights and practical guidance on growing a much better garden.

Being the Change: A New Kind of Climate Documentary by Mary Grandelis and Dave Davis

Based on the book, Being the Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution, this feature length documentary follows climate scientist and suburban father Peter Kalmus on his journey to cut his climate impact down to one-tenth the U.S. average. Being the Change merges science, spirituality, and practical knowledge to offer a deeply optimistic message: living without fossil fuels is not only possible, it can make you happier.

For a chance to win a set of books and the DVD, just enter your name and email address into the form below. One entry per person. The form will close at midnight Pacific Time on Monday, April 9. The winners will be notified by email and asked a skill-testing question before they will be sent the books.
