How to Grow Your Own Food by Adrienne Grant and Melanie Snowdon
How To Grow Your Own Food: A manual for people who like to eat
This book is a practical guide for people who want to start gardening but thought it was too hard. It has been designed so that you can be growing the food you want to eat as soon as possible. It even includes suggestions for people with no space, no time or no money...so no excuses.
It has heaps of diagrams and a minimal number of Latin names. The book was written at the same time we were running a course on organic gardeing for low income people. As such, it reflects many of the course notes that we used, and was edited accordingly.
