A Happy Green Life Book Club

Our August book for A Happy Green Life Book Club is...
How to Grow Your Own Food: A guide for beginers
If you havent noticed yet, we here at A Happy Green Life like food, and we love it to be fresh from the garden. We have had fans in the past ask us where the best place is to start when you plan on making a garden. I asked myself this same question when we started our mini urban farm, and I turned to this months book How to Grow Your Own Food: A Guide for Beginers  by John Clift and Amanda Cuthbert.
This great book will give you all the information you need to start your own garden, reagrdless of your location.
"Taking into account the limited space available to the urban gardener, Clift and Cuthbert have produced a tome that's perfect for the inner city horticulturalist. Growing fruit and vegetables is a big subject, and squeezing even a small selection of plants into such a small volume is no easy task. Happily the authors have done a good job of deciding what should go in, and what really had to be left out. For complete novices, this book is a helpful, unthreatening guide to their first few seasons as a gardener, whether they have a balcony, bare concrete, a patio or a larger patch of ground. It's not for committed gardeners but if you're looking for some measure of self-sustainability and aren't quite sure how to go about it, How to Grow Your Food: A Guide for Complete Beginners is an invaluable resource."
I am very excited to share this book with you, so excited in fact, A Happy Green Life has gotten an extra copy to share with one of our lucky readers! Enter today to win a copy of this amazing book!

  1. Hi there,
    I just came coincidently accross your blog and I like it a lot.
    It is so nice to see that you share all your knowledge and ideas with people !

    Personally I truly believe that the green movement is a neccesity and we need change in order to enter our future.
    Currently I am reading this fantastic (half-fictional ) book based on today's forecasts and it is actually quite optimistic ( if more people accept today's truth of course... ).
    maybe you will like it:

    have a nice day !
