Synopsis

Get Growing A New Zealand Step-by-step Guide to Growing Your Own Veges by Helen Cook

More and more people are turning back to growing their own food in this time of rising food and petrol costs and plummeting house values. And for some time now, primary schools have been teaching their students how to grow plants and have extra-curricular garden clubs. Children don't need to know everything there is about edible gardening to get started. Nor do their grownups. The book is designed to give people of all ages some basics, along with projects and activities to spark young imaginations and cultivate green thumbs. The finer details of growing food can come later, once their appetite for gardening has been whetted. This is about recapturing the flavours and foods of our pasts for our children. It re-introduces the idea that food comes from nature - not the supermarket - and the acts of growing, preparing and sharing it can be immensely satisfying. This book is packed with information and ideas for making edible gardening a fun activity that all members of the family can enjoy.
