What’s in it for me? Learn to grow your own food.
Maybe you live in the city. Maybe you live surrounded by vast fields of green. Either way, you have the opportunity to sow your own seeds, to cultivate and grow them and, finally, to eat them. And it doesn’t stop there. You also have the opportunity to stand against the horrific methods of big food corporations.
Pretty cool to be able to serve home-grown veggies when you invite your friends over for dinner, right? And let’s see how happy they’ll be when you assure them that everything is pesticide-free. There probably won’t be much left over.
In Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, the authors pull you into the universe of growing your own food. You’ll learn when to sow what and when to expect what to grow.

In these blinks, you’ll discover
- why people still buy the products of big food corporations;
