“A vitally important book, perfectly timed, for the extraordinary times ahead. There should not be a household without one”
Anthea Torr, editor of Biophile magazine

Jacana has just published Pat Featherstone’s “Grow to Live:  A Simple Guide to Growing Your Own Good, Clean Food”
The benefits of food gardens are many. They deepen our connection with nature, quieten our minds and create a new understanding of life. The food that is grown gives physical sustenance. The experience of growing it feeds the soul. Can we grow ourselves out of the environmental problems that overwhelm the planet today? There is hope that we can if we know how to get going and use the goods and services provided by Mother Nature that enable us to work in harmony with the environment. This beautiful and, above all, practical book will teach you all you need to know about growing your own food and is a celebration of the wonders of the natural world.
