Tending the Garden Island is an inspiring progress report on community-building that integrates recent work in social capital and ecological economics and applies it to a Kauaian style of living in ecosystems and a history of initiative in this isolated rural place. More than a first-hand account of one plantation-cum-resort island on the edge of over-development, this forward-looking assessment charts a course for dramatic change in how Kauaian community resources are managed and island sustainability attained. In 100 fact-packed pages, what is known about this Kauaian economy, ecology and community is presented with lots of graphics and a prosaic narrative woven around the island's current situation and coming challenges.
