This easy to use vegetable gardening book has a manageable length of 68 pages that clearly show you how to turn your yard into an urban farm.

With illustrations and step-by-step instructions, it simplifies the process of starting your own herb patch or Victory Garden. Whether you have a 10 foot x 10 foot section or an entire estate to work with, this book has tips that fit every size yard.

A small backyard garden can cut your grocery bill by $30 to $100 (or more) each month. Over the course of a year, a small home garden will pay for itself several times over, while also giving you an excuse to enjoy the fresh air.

The book is a great place to start learning about earth friendly gardening and sustainable agriculture. It makes a great gift for gardeners and inspirational reading for green activists. It's also a thrilling house warming present that can help first time home buyers learn about their new yard.
