The larger picture of our food production industry comes into sharp focus with her thoughtful and gentle prodding. Lorraine shows, in a humorous and non-overwhelming way, how growing our own food creates greater opportunities, and desires, to know more about how and what we eat. If you hanker to grow your own delicious food, Lorraine's practical tips - ranging from how to compost, how to convert a lawn into a vegetable bed and what edible plants are easy to grow with children - will have you well on your way.
