Product description


Growing your own food is not just about sustainability; it is a state of mind. As anyone who grows their own veg knows, you only have to start simple and before you know it you're hooked. If you don't know where to start, The Alternative Kitchen Garden: an A-Z shows that there isn't really a start, just an experiment. And if you have been experimenting, this book will take you a step further. --Alex McDonald, The Ecologist

A neat little handbook of ideas for kitchen gardening. In a quest to reduce her food miles Emma has developed a real passion for growing edible plants. She is keen to develop organic and permaculture solutions in her garden and reports back to the readers on trials and experiments. Great inspiration. --Eden Magazine

Like any good gardening book should do, it had me jotting down notes about things to research (trefoil as a green manure), things to purchase (borage is the newest perennial to be added with comfrey to follow in short order), and things to do (interplant chamomile to improve soil). In short, it gave me a boost after a difficult growing season when I needed it to start planning for the season ahead. --Joan Bailey, food and farming blogger in Japan

About the Author

If she's not out in the garden making compost and growing odd plants, or writing books, Emma will be updating her garden blog and recording the Alternative Kitchen Garden podcast. Emma writes gardening and green living articles, and has been published in the Guardian, the Ecologist and Permaculture magazine (among others) as well as appearing on the BBC Gardening and Readers Digest Gardening blogs. Until 2012, Emma lived in Oxfordshire with three plastic compost bins, two wormeries and a pair of bokashi bins. There used to be chickens too, but they moved on to pastures new some time ago. So too, now, has Emma, moving to Kent to study Ethnobotany in September 2012.
