Urban Farm Book Launch
The Urban Farm Museum Society of Spryfield, with Marjorie Willison, is launching Come Grow With Us: A Family Guide to Growing Vegetables on Tuesday, August 12, 7 pm at the Urban Farm. The 152 page book is chock full of ideas about growing great families as part of growing vegetables – to give double the results. Marjorie will be on hand to sign books, and everyone is welcome to wander the lovely gardens at the Farm.
This book is for three generations and families of any age or gender. Along with all the key steps for growing vegetables, you’ll also find tips for nurturing healthy child development, ideas for strong family life, and suggestions for aging well.
“My role, as a member of the Urban Farm in Spryfield,” said Marjorie, “was to pull together years of interest by many people in our Come Grow With Us program, in order to write a practical, down-to-earth guide for how to grow vegetables and nurture strong and healthy families.”
Over 100 beautiful line drawings by Marie Koehler, Alice Gilson, and Martin Willison help to explain basic gardening know-how, along with tips and ideas for more advanced gardeners. “Bringing this book to publication has been an act of love by many people, and I feel privileged to have played a role”, says Marjorie.
