The Rooftop Growing Guide-Book Review
I was excited to see this book offered for review. I couldn't wait till I received it!
And, I was not disappointed.
This is a very interesting topic to me. I'm not planning on
a rooftop garden but the information I think can be used when planning a container garden or patio garden.
From the inside cover . . .
If you'd like to grow your own food but don't think you have the space look up!
. . . Annie Novak's passion shines as she draws on her experience as a pioneering sky-high farmer to teach best practices for raising vegetables, herbs, flowers and trees. The book includes
interviews, expert essays and farm and garden profiles from across the country . . .
And there are lots of pictures!
What a gorgeous view
I enjoyed looking at the different profiles of different gardens. Many of the gardens featured were from restaurants.
There are lots of charts and how to's providing information and making it simple to plant a garen.
Here are a few comments from chefs and other authors
