Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Elevate your backyard veggie patch into a work of sophisticated and stylish art. Kitchen Garden Revival guides you through every aspect of kitchen gardening, from design to harvesting--with expert advice from author Nicole Johnsey Burke, founder of Rooted Garden, one of the leading US culinary landscape companies, and Gardenary, an online kitchen gardening education and resource company. <br> <br> Participating in the grow-your-own movement is important to both reduce your food miles and control what makes it onto your family's table . If you've hesitated to take part because installing and caring for a traditional vegetable garden doesn't seem to suit your life or your sense of style, Kitchen Garden Revival is here to show you there's a better, more beautiful way to grow food .<br> <br> Instead of row after row of cabbage and pepper plants plunked into a patch of dirt in the middle of the yard, kitchen gardens are attractive, highly tailored food gardens consisting of easy-to-maintain raised planting beds laid out in an organized geometric pattern. Offering both four seasons of ornamental interest and plenty of fresh, homegrown fruits, vegetables, and herbs , kitchen gardens are the way to grow your own food in a fashionable, modern, and practical way.<br> <br> Kitchen gardens were once popular features of the European and early American landscape, but they fell out of favor when our agrarian roots were displaced by industrialization. With this accessible and inspirational guide , Nicole aims to return the kitchen garden to its rightful place just outside of every backdoor.<br> <br> Learn the art of kitchen gardening as you discover: What characteristics all kitchen gardens have in common How to design and install gorgeous kitchen garden beds using metal, wood, or stone Why raised beds mean reduced maintenance What crops are best for your kitchen garden A planting, tending, and harvesting plan developed by a pro Season-by-season growing guides It's time to join the Kitchen Garden Revival and start growing your own delicious, organic food.
