Summary

A self confessed ‘cyber geek’, Emma Cooper began to document the transformation of her ‘ropey old lawn with potholes and brambles’ into a fertile and abundant permaculture plot via internet radio and a popular blog site. Eight years on, her postings and stories have been collated in The Alternative Kitchen Garden: An A-Z, illustrated with beautiful colour photographs and arranged into easily accessible alphabetical order, covering subjects as diverse as growing achocha (a lost Inca crop) to aiming for zero waste.

I give this book 8 out of 10 acorns.

This book is like a blog, only on paper And since I like to read blogs very much, I like a formula of this book. For each letter of the alphabet an author serves you from three to seven short essays on wide range of topics - from allotments to zucchinis. All chapters are based upon Author's personal experiences in her garden, which makes it a very enjoyable to read and very practical in the same time. The book is full of tips and tricks, how to's and why's. In the same time it is a light read that does not resemble traditional gardening manuals. I have found it both useful and fun to read.
