A Simple Guide to Nova Scotia Vegetable Gardening
By Elizabeth Peirce
Grow Organic deals with specifically Nova Scotian issues, giving advice about our growing season, which types of vegetables grow best here, and where to get local organic seeds. The book also contains a chapter of inspirational profiles of specific gardeners and farmers from around the province. The book is written in a friendly, straightforward manner, and is intended as a simple and accessible guide for people with a specific interest in organic vegetable gardening. It includes many illustrative photographs and recipes.
Depending on the season, Elizabeth Peirce is a writer, gardener, and English professor who lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She has worked in vegetable gardens since she was old enough to hold a watering can and is passionate about local food and food security issues. She hopes to start offering beginner workshops on home canning and preserving in the near future.
