Grow your Own Vegetables and HerbsBook - 2014
In community gardens, people of all ages work together to improve their communities, turning abandoned lots and other plots of land into vibrant green spaces. Community gardens beautify neighborhoods, provide residents with nutritious food and flowers, and serve as places to meet and socialize. This exciting title gives teens the information they need to get a gardening project off the ground, from holding the first community meetings to harvesting what they grow. In accessible text, the author provides useful advice on designing the garden, choosing appropriate plants, and preparing the soil, as well as on planting and tending the garden. Photos will inspire readers, and a wealth of resources is provided for further support.
