A HANDBOOK FOR LAND STEWARDSHIP IN THE WEST - 2008/09/03 14:57Havilah resident Ron LaRosa has published a valuable guide for KRV residents: SOIL, WATER, PLANT & NEST SITE CONSERVATION A HANDBOOK FOR LAND STEWARDSHIP IN THE WEST Ron LaRosa is a member of the Kern River Valley Garden Group.
He has just published his long awaited book. Having been a consultant to others on how to conserve our natural and physical resources, Havilah resident Ron LaRosa took his own medicine and in 2001, began a seven-year land stewardship odyssey. Although he relied upon the environmental sciences which were the foundation of his career, he adopted a naturalist’s approach to rural property management.
With this user-friendly guide designed to be taken outdoors, the reader will become familiar with the practical steps to improve and protect the land. The 62 page 8˝” by 5˝” handbook also explains how to save time and money by using natural materials-at-hand, recycling items used on the homestead and following the everyday examples of Nature.
Written for landowners, outdoor organizations and resources agency technicians, this conservation handbook explains the procedures of how to identify, design and undertake effective, durable conservation tasks—some of which can be completed without tools or equipment in 5 minutes!
