"This book started it all for me. It opened my eyes to the possibilities of producing food for myself and showed me a way to do so while living in the middle of a big city. Why waste our water on ornamental lawns and flowers, food crops can be just as beautiful and feeds us at the same time!"
"Compost can be soooo easy and it feels great to use it successfully in your garden. I don't love everything about this book because some of it just don't apply to my situation. It's really written for people who have actual yards. I have a concrete patio. But the basics are here. Everyone should be able to compost."
"A lot of enthusiasm in this book. Not very in depth but that's not the purpose of it. I like that there are so many ideas in here that I actually believe in such as questioning consumption, better food production, conserving water, etc."
