Although I love gardening, I still have a lot to learn. Here I learned about double digging, staggered planting, where to get a free soil test kit, and so much more. Also, I had never even heard the term friendship garden. I am amazed and intrigued by the idea of friendship gardens. What a great way to give back to the community.
Seeing the mass amount of chemicals everywhere is disturbing. I am very happy to see the encouragment and resources shared to achieve organic gardening. I plan to share this with my child's school.
This has been a fun but short read.The included planting guides are very handy. Although this booked is aimed at those gardening in North Carolina, It has lots of useful information for anyone who loves gardening.
I don't usually plant a fall garden, but after reading this guide, we will be attempting one this year. I didn't know to plant things deeper in the fall until now. I also learned about Winter gardneing. I now understand why I have failed at this in the past.
I am a hobby gardener. Each time we move, in a very short time, I'm looking for a way to get my hands in the dirt planting. This is a great book -- inspired by a community that is putting the idea of friendship gardens to great use - building relationships and eradicating food deserts.
It's also one of the most comprehensive starter gardening books I've read. There is SO MUCH solid content in here. The only caution (and I don't see this as a negative in any way), is that, because the book is in part documenting the work done by this group, the planting information is very specific to their region. We are currently not too far from there, but I noted several places where we need to handle things differently here, because of climate.
So, if you're looking for inspiration and information, and willing to find out the specifics of temperatures and planting dates for your garden zone, this is a great option. I highly recommend it.
I received a copy of this book for free for review purposes. Any opinion expressed is mine alone.
