“Sustainability: to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

World Commission on Environment and Development (1989)


A couple months ago I agreed to do a tweetup on  #gardenchat. I had first wanted to do something on natural pest and disease control since most of Canada has banned pesticides for home use. But Brenda Haas, moderator of #gardenchat, felt it already been covered.  I put my thinking cap on and came up  with “Sustainable Garden Design.”

Because of all the marketing hype around this book, I was a little leery reviewing it.  I wondered if the book could match the marketing hype.  With every book review, I read the book from cover to cover. Then I wait. I let the essence of book percolate. Reviewing [amazon_link id=”1603425683″ target=”_blank” ]The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener: How to Grow Your Own Food 365 Days a Year, No Matter Where You Live[/amazon_link] took a while.  It’s a big, information-packed book (225 pages, not including appendixes and index, which are an extra 20 pages).
