The Community Gardening Handbook
Plant & Grow TogetherBook - 2017
GARDENING: PLANTS. Community gardening is a growing revolution that is taking root in towns and cities all over the world. Groups of likeminded people are transforming neglected plots of land into green, flourishing spaces for everyone to enjoy. In The Community Gardening Handbook, Ben Raskin shares his keen expertise in an invaluable introduction to a new wave of collective self- sufficiency, encouraging a community audience to grow food and to garden together. A look into the background of community gardening and its benefits is followed by a practical guide: planning advice is laid out, alongside essential etiquette tips for running a successful site, and proven ideas for involving the whole neighbourhood. Add a community-minded directory of the top vegetables, flowers, fruit, and herbs to plant up, with key tips on growing in containers to maximize your space, and you can get ready to dig in for a community garden that will blossom and thrive for everyone.
