Review: Eat your garden, by Leonie Shanahan; Publisher: PI Productions Photography; ISBN 9780975217764; 2010.
If they (children) grow it, they will eat it.
Schools are where Australias gardening culture is most rapidly developing, and this is thanks to children. Why? They are generally more keenly aware of 21st century global environmental issues than many adults realise and they want a better future.
If youre a beginner gardener or a parent and you and your child would like to learn about gardening, Eat your garden is for you.
Successful gardens need sound foundations, and this work will become an essential daily reference for running or establishing either a school or a home vegetable garden.
This work successfully merges permaculture with organic gardening, and years of personal, practical advice from a gardener who has been involved in every aspect of school and home food growing.
The plentiful illustrations inspire and inform, the information is concise, and all the plentiful tips and tricks are easily followed. Theres even a month by month garden maintenance guide.
This is not just a how to do it guide, its a Shanahan synthesis of how to do it well and understanding why it matters guide. A valuable and refreshing read.
