Book Review: Your Farm in the City by Lisa Taylor


The author is affiliated with Seattle Tilth, a local nonprofit that educates people about organic gardening.

This book is written in a very upbeat mood: none of the doom and gloom about the toxicity of the status quo, just exuberance about the possibilities available for growing your own food.

Topics covered include vegetables, fruit, composting, food preservation, small livestock, and season extenders.  The gardening information is in-depth but the livestock and food preservation chapters are overviews – enough to get you started but not comprehensive.
