Chelsea Green: Your One-stop Publisher on Sustainability

abstract:I've just discovered the most amazing publisher of books entirely devoted to diverse topics on sustainability. I want to order a dozen books immediately! Meet Chelsea Green Publishing. Founded in 1984 in Vermont, it has emerged as the go-to source for people with a serious interest in organic farming and gardening, permaculture, ecology, the environment, simple living, food, sustainable business and economics, green building, and more. They have over 350 titles in print and digital download. A scan of their new releases brings up an intriguing list of titles:

  • The Biointegrated Farm,
  • The Art of Leading Collectively,
  • Make Mead like a Viking,
  • The Book of Pears,
  • The New Livestock Farmer,
  • Beyond the War on Invasive Species,
  • Trees for Gardens, Orchards and Permaculture,
  • Start Your Own Wood,
  • The Local Economy Solution,
  • Will Bonsai's Essential Guide to Radical Self-Reliant Gardening,
  • Thinking for Social Change,
  • The Lean Farm,
  • Two Percent Solutions for Understanding Roots,
  • The PawPaw,
  • The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America
and so on...

I came upon Chelsea Greens's website when looking to book a local cheesemaker, David Asher of The Blacksheep School of Cheesemaking for a cheese making workshop. His book The Art of Natural Cheesemaking is published by this Vermont-based business despite David Asher being located on a small island in the gulf on the west coast of British Columbia. Saltspring, home of the delicious producer of Saltspring goat cheese, is just a short ferry ride from Vancouver. People say the salt sprayed forage browsed by local sheep populations make the meat particularly tastey - we love the soft mild cheese they produce at the creamery with varieties topped in wildflower petals, peppercorns or roasted garlic! What I like about his book and the Chelsea Green style of publishing is that they are totally in sync with today's modern thinking farmers, ecologists, hobbyists and policy makers.

— In 2012 Chelsea Green became employee owned with 78% of the staff owning the company's private stock. They also rely upon and reward customers for marketing of products through social media by offering new subscribers discounts on books for posting reviews and links on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Google Plus networks. A great way to instantly reward customers and spread their philosophy of reaping benefits from our own educations on topics of sustainability.
