Watch Me Grow! A Down-to-Earth Look at Growing Food in the City by Deborah Hodge has been an excellent addition to the library collection. It’s a companion book to Up We Grow, published last year.
If you live in the city, finding a place to grow food can be an adventure. But look to roof tops, front porches, backyards, balconies and windowsills and there’s plenty of room. Hodge and photographer, Brian Harris show you city gardens of all shapes and sizes. Tips for growing a variety of gardens such as pizza garden, and a herb garden are featured in green text boxes.
The book is divided in four sections: Growing, Sharing, Eating and Caring. It’s an inspirational read that will make you want to go outside to plant a garden.
