Patchwork: Stories of Gardens and Community
Patchwork offers an inspired collection of vignettes that explore the reasons why people choose to garden together in community. Patchwork includes first person oral histories from ten community gardeners representing a diversity of cultural perspectives. They are accompanied by exquisite photographs, journal entries and several pages of resources that provide a helpful guide for those interested in learning how to start and sustain a community or youth garden.
“The stories in Patchwork illustrate the rich diversity of people who community garden and show the common thread that brings together love of the land, fresh food, and neighbors.”
