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.

For my next trick, I'll need the help of a tiny ad ...
