Make a beautiful, practical, environmentally conscious garden, even in a small space … grow UP with a living wall!
A living wall is a vertical structure, usually outside the home, that is built with live plants growing in containers hung in a decorative arrangement.
Sometimes called "Green Walls" and "Vertical Gardens," living walls are easier than ever to plan and grow! Grow a Living Wall is the first wall-gardening book to focus exclusively on the needs of home gardeners.
Make your vertical garden environmentally friendly and sustainable. It's easy with author Shawna Coronado's help! One of her themed vertical gardens is stocked mostly with flowers to make it a haven for bees and other pollinators. Other gardens are filled with vegetables and herbs, so anyone with an outdoor wall can grow their own food … beautifully! Even more gardens promote aromatherapy or medicinal plants. Some are designed to provide a green net of air filtration near a living area, or to protect exterior walls from exposure to direct sunlight (which helps to keep the indoors cool).
In addition to the comprehensive, step-by-step information that explains the basics of vertical gardening, each of the 20 featured gardens has its own chapter filled with useful tips, stunning photography and fascinating background stories that point out how much difference a small garden can make. The gardens you'll find in Grow a Living Wall are positive, life-affirming and sure to produce a smile or two.

Grow a Sustainable Diet will help you develop a comprehensive, customized garden plan to produce the maximum number of calories and nutrients from any available space. Avoid arriving in August buried under a mountain of kale or zucchini (and not much else) by making thoughtful choices at the planning stage, focusing on dietary staples and key nutrients.

Gardeners and conservationists can use this book to help preserve wild places and as solid ground for fostering and protecting our irreplaceable native medicinal plants.
