Today is an exciting day… my book cover has been revealed. Between professional travel, speaking and consulting I am writing a book about my passion for making the everyday landscape RELEVANT. I promise, this is not “another vegetable gardening book”.
This book encourages everyone to “think outside of the box,” and to learn how pairing edibles in a traditional ornamental landscape can be beautiful and HOA approved. Focusing on simple ways to enhance existing landscapes, I discuss how to use open mulch space and bed edges to grow meaningful amounts of produce to help reduce the food miles crisis, ensuring that quality produce is available in every home and community. The book discusses how foodscape design increases bio-diversity and encourages sustainable land management practices that are affordable and time-efficient for homeowners and renters. The best edible and ornamental pairings are featured to inspire readers to create purposeful landscapes that engage people of all ages. Several projects, from simple to complex, are outlined in the book so that readers can get started foodscaping right away.
The Foodscape Revolution features fun and easy solutions to growing food and community. The ‘Yard to Table’ recipes are delicious and are sure to resonate with readers who have an appetite for growing and eating organic, local food.
Every landscape offer an opportunity to grow wonder, ecology and nutrition. Join the revolution and turn your ordinary yard into a Foodscape!
