Editorial Reviews

Review

McCrate and Halm prove that anyone can develop a green thumb. ---Urban Farm Magazine

Featured as a "Best Beach Reads 2012: Green Home and Gardening Books for the Summer" -Huffington Post Green

"If only all textbooks were this pretty. Founders of the Seattle Urban Farm Co. have created a terrifically informative, nicely photographed guide to gardening--not just for Western Washington, but for any planting zone." -Edible Seattle

"[Food Grown Right] teaches beginners the basics, like where to put their gardens, how to test their soil and how to keep their plants alive." -The Akron Beacon Journal

"The cofounders of Seattle Urban Farm Co.--a nationally recognized outfit that has helped hundreds of families, schools and restaurants design and implement urban gardens--share the wisdom they have accumulated over the years in this overstuffed, lively and personable tome."  -Cascadia Weekly

About the Author

Colin McCrate

COLIN McCRATE has been growing food organically for more than a decade. He worked on a variety of small farms in the Mid-West before taking a position as Garden Manager at an Environmental Education center on Orcas Island, WA. After leaving Orcas, Colin stayed in the Pacific Northwest, working simultaneously for Farmhouse Organics in Poulsbo, WA and as a residential landscaper in Seattle. After spending a few seasons designing and installing gardens in the city, he officially founded the Seattle Urban Farm Company in January of 2007. It all started with a simple question: "Does anyone need help setting up a vegetable garden?" and it turned out, quite a few did. Learn more at seattleurbanfarmcompany.com



Brad Halm

BRAD HALM'S interest in food production started in a small vegetable garden at the Homestead, an experiential living option at Denison University in Ohio. After graduating, he apprenticed on organic farms around Ohio for several years, then took a position as the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Manager for Village Acres Farm in Pennsylvania. He moved to Seattle in 2007 to help Colin start the Seattle Urban Farm Company, and he has been building urban farms ever since. Learn more at seattleurbanfarmcompany.com



HILARY DAHL, a Seattle native, has been with the Seattle Urban Farm Company since the winter of 2010. She brings with her an educational background in landscape architecture and urban planning from the University of Washington. During college Hilary spent three summers interning on a sustainable, net-zero energy housing construction project on Lopez Island in the San Juan Islands where she learned traditional and alternative construction skills as well as organic gardening methods. Hilary is also our in-house photographer and you will find her photos on this website and on our other outreach material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read before you decide on a garden spot!
By Mary Shaw on May 19, 2020
This book covers it all. When we started to plan our garden, we got this book first. I am so glad we did! I read several other gardening books, and while they were all helpful, none of the other books came close to this one in terms of breadth and depth of useful material. It covers deciding where to put it, how big to make it, and what shape it should take. It covers what to do about irrigation, soil, fertilizer (hint: go organic), and more. It covers what kinds of seeds to get, how to plan what to plant when, and how/why to do crop rotation. It goes into the main crops you might grow, what to watch for, and what you can learn from each crop.

The authors run a Seattle home gardening business and I live in Utah. It is a completely different climate, and I feel like they did a good job making it generic enough to work for any location.

I am on my third garden season and I am still learning, but there are things you can only do when you are planning your garden (like out it in the sunshine), and I am so glad I had this book to help with the planning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have book!
By NurseonaFarm on July 13, 2019
I was recommend this book so I checked it out from the library and I LOVED it. I had to buy it because it is a must have for gardeners. It is well written, organized and easy to understand regardless of how much gardening experience you have. My favorite part is the month by month guide on what you shoud be doing in your garden. They also go through tons of plant care and provide tons of examples on how to design gardens of all shapes and sizes.
