Growing Great Places Together

This veggie gardening “how to” guide has been a labour of love, written and illustrated with the passionate belief in the power of veggie gardening to provide solutions to many issues of our time.

A handful of seeds, a bit of space – whether in a front or backyard, in a container on a balcony, a plot in a community garden or
space where once was a lawn — and the involvement of children, families, neighbours and friends are the ingredients to a harvest of possibilities, ranging from home-grown food for the family and those in need, an appreciation of Mother Nature and a learning network that will last a lifetime.

Nothing compares with a season of gardening experience. And to kick it off, this guide is designed to be a companion in the garden, full of tips and suggestions that help you dig in to the joys of veggie gardening.

Special thanks are extended to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their tremendous support and care. As well, many garden writers, environmental and community advocates have generously contributed to the content of this workbook.

Wishing you a bounty of veggie gardening success!
