Veg Street: Grow Your Own Community

by Naomi Schillinger - £16.99  Short Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780721125 | ISBN 10: 1780721129

This book celebrates the fact that anyone can ‘grow your own’ and that through veg growing you can meet your neighbours and grow your own community too.
 
A few years ago, Naomi Schillinger got together with her neighbours to start a community gardening scheme. Today, they live in a street in which no less than 100 residents have turned their front gardens over to growing their own fruit and veg: lettuces, leeks and beetroot in raised beds, teepees billowing with sweet peas and runner beans, rhubarb by the door…
 
Whether you live in a rented flat with a window box, a house with a front garden – if you have access to a bit of pavement or decide to reclaim some unloved or forgotten corner – there will be ideas in this book which will encourage you to have a go at growing your own fruit and veg (and flowers) throughout the year; and, in so doing, create your own mini Eden.
