In response to the rising interest in homegrown foods, the Seattle Urban Farm Co. builds backyard vegetable gardens for everyone from busy families to groups of renters to trendy restaurants. Along the way, McCrate and Halm teach beginning growers the techniques of organic food production and how to build a garden from the ground up. In simple, accessible terms, they explain key topics.
Quick-reference tables, accounts of other beginning gardeners, informative full-color photographs, and step-by-step instructions all come together in this unique, friendly guide that proves, once and for all, that anyone can develop a "green thumb"!
