Review:

The idea in this book is to give you 3 ways that you can grow a garden, and what you can do, both craft, health and edible wise, with each. Pretty straightforward, and this book will give you SO much inspiration for bringing back the ways of our grandmothers and reconnecting to the earth by  using what we grow! While it may start off as Mom's project, it's sure to be come a garden for the entire family to use, and this book would be an excellent resource for a homeschool garden projects as well. mainly because the photos are just so easy to follow along with and understand. You may find yourself immersed in this book for quite a while before you even start your garden, and don't be surprised if you take bits from all 3 types, and make one garden for YOUR needs and wants. That's the beauty of this book- it allows you to do just that. Make mom's day this year with this book and a basket of gardening and craft items, and it will be the gift that keeps on giving!
