Description

Dedicated to Earth Day, this little book is designed to encourage replacement of non-functional, bright green lawns, with more diverse plant life and vegetable gardens. There is nothing like home grown garden produce.

 

This book will teach you how to take the hard work out of the process.

 

The author encourages the reader to work with Nature, rather than fighting every step of the way.

 

Having created vegetable gardens in a range of locations and climates, the author is well aware of the challenges. He learned to let worms do the digging, develop ground cover to suppress weeds, maintain moisture, and reduce soil loss due to runoff during heavy rains. He plants beans and broadcasts clovers, to provide nitrogen, along with many other tricks and tips for enjoyable vegetable gardening.

 

As an avid gardener an vegan, Dr. Morgan knows a great deal about vegetables, and the joys of their cultivation, culinary preparation, and consumption.

 

Gardening does not have to be back breaking toil.

 

The author is in his mid-70s, and is able to maintain his vegetable garden in his stride, without an aching back.

 

In times of food insecurity, due to societal unrest, climate change, and and other pressures, a vegetable garden can take the pressure off of your anxiety. Furthermore, what is more calming than working with the soil, watching nature at work, and enjoying garden produce straight "off the vine?"

 

The book focuses on our need for a better understanding ecology, how plants and animals interact, especially with ongoing climate change. Awareness of local "agroecological" situations in your garden will increase your awareness of the critical nature of ecology, when it comes to protecting our precious planet for future generations.

 

The author suggests we do this work one little vegetable garden at a time, while simultaneously reducing the acreage of environmentally damaging bright green lawns, which consume vast quantities of lethal fossil fuel products, further exacerbating the climate challenge.

 

Fossil fuels will eventually run out, so the author would like us to be prepared.

 

He wishes you happy gardening, delicious garden produce, and a long healthy life for you, your descendants, on Space Ship Earth.
