Food, we can't live without it, yet its costs are rising and consuming more of the family budget. In addition, health concerns about the use of pesticides, gmo foods, and potential soil mineral depletion in the food supply inspire more people to want to grow their own vegetables.

Author Biography

When Margaret Park moved from rural North Carolina to downtown Salt Lake City, she needed to come up with new methods of vegetable gardening in her small urban backyard. Over four years, she experimented with tighter seed spacing, vertical growing supports, multiple cropping through the year and composting with EM bokashi to arrive at a highly productive system to grow a lot of food in a small space. Margaret Park is the author of four children's books. She was a 2012 Grow America finalist.
