In the spring of 2016, my first gardening book – Raised Bed Revolution – will be published and available in North America and the UK.
I wrote the book for Cool Springs Press, a Minneapolis-based publishing company that is now a part of The Quarto Group. The subject of this book appealed to both my creative side that likes to make things and to my gardening side, so it was so fun to write and organize.
Raised Bed Revolution features several DIY projects with step-by-step photography, tons of inspirational images from generous gardeners and gardening companies, and lots of helpful tips on building and planting. There’s even a chapter called Not Handy? No Problem! for those who want raised beds in their yard, but who don’t have the woodworking know-how or tools to build them.
Most of the projects that have DIY steps were photographed by Donna Griffith, built by Scott McKinnon (in my yard and in my family’s yards) and illustrated by Len Churchill. I’m honoured to have worked with all of them and to feature their talents in my book.
I already have several speaking gigs lined up for 2016 to talk about the book, including Canada Blooms.
I will also be presenting to The Halton Master Gardeners in March and at the Peterborough Garden Show and to the Cloverleaf Garden Club in April.
