Someone asked me to provide her a list of the permaculture books that we carry. When I wrote the list I did not realize we had so many. I thought I would share it with everyone else. This list does not include our books on Organic Gardening, beekeeping, chicken coops, house building and such. AND definitely not including our listing of Vegan, Vegetarian, Plant Based and Raw recipe books which would be about 10 times longer :).
Today we received some new titles (more new titles coming next week). So many people are incorporating more plant based meals into their lives. It is really good to see. The book industry is responding to this shift and we are seeing an incredible number of books being issued. List of books after the “Read More.”
Earth’s General Store has led the way to reintroducing fermentation to our local community with workshops, crocks, organic cabbage, and a large selection of books. Today we have added another tool so that people can make their own fermented foods right in their own home… the PerfectPickler™.
Earth’s General Store tries to offer socially and environmental products at a reasonable and fair price. This is one of the reasons why we started to roast our own Fair Trade Certified and Certified Organic coffee in the store. We could deliver freshly roasted coffee that was ethically/socially superior with minimal environmental impact PLUS being produced by artisans here in Edmonton – adding value to our community. We find that we need to change the prices for our coffee. Since we started to roast coffee in 2004 we have only raised the prices once – to go from $12.00 per pound to $12.50 per pound. It has been over 4 years since we raised our prices, so today we are raising the price to $13.50 per pound ($29.70/kg) for our roasted coffee beans.
A woman was in the store last week who had just come over here from Planet Organic, where she had asked this same question of two of their staff. ‘Do your products contain GMOs?’ One person told her that if it contained corn from the USA it had GMO even if it was labelled organic. The other person said that if it were labelled organic or NON-GMO Project Verified it does not have GMO ingredients. She was confused with their answer and came over to ask me. I think she was pleased with the thoroughness of my answer.
Today we received several calls about dried white mulberries. This is unusual for this product. When one of the staff asked a caller why the interest, they said they saw it on Dr Oz. Yes, we do carry dried white mulberry. We carry the packaged product and we even carry this in bulk at $36.00 per kilogram. Save money, save packaging, and save landfill space!
I always try and get new books on the subjects that matter to me. Books about adding skills to ones life, eating healthier, treading lighter on the planet, permaculture, agroecology, alternative building, fermentation, food preservation, veganism/vegetarianism/plant-based diet covers most of the types of books we carry.
Several people have come into the store lately saying that they haven’t been able to find Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos at their usual store and were surprised when they saw that we had plenty of the product. Coconut Aminos Available at Earth’s General Store in Package and BULK! Earth’s General Store was the first store to …
