A Patch From Scratch – Hardcover
‘A Patch from Scratch’ follows the adventures of one family, living in an urban setting, who decide to live a more sustainable lifestyle. The journey begins as they plan and plant, raise chicks, and build compost. But it’s not all smooth sailing, and they soon run into trouble…
In today’s fast food and throwaway society, children are missing the experience of connecting with the natural rhythms of life and nature. So are many adults, leading to the rise of interest in sustainable ecology, and the whole food movement. This is evidenced by the popularity of garden programs in schools such as the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden project, Jamie Oliver’s latest promotion with Woolworth’s, and TV programs such as Costa’s Garden Odyssey, and Gourmet Farmer.
