Very preachy and insufferable. Her most common noun is "I". Little useful information that is not already known by anyone even tangentially involved in permaculture, organic gardening or living a non-consumer lifestyle. It's rare that I don't finish a book but couldn't plow through this one. Read Toby Hemenway or Bill Mollison instead.

This is the most inspiring book on naturalizing our home & neighborhood relationships I?ve ever read, after 30 years of study & practice. I?ve visited 100s of gardens in a dozen nations & grown them in Oregon, Puget sound, Hawaii & Australia during my Permaculture design course training with Robyn Francis in Nimbin NSW.
If you want to green up your yard & grow fresh organic food at home, this is it. Heather?s writing is lucid, clear & personal ?how to? do it at every stage beginning to ever growing greener. I?ve known her since late ?90s when she & friends began to urbanize Permaculture, ie organic homesteading with many cooperative projects, gardening in a park, seed swaps, workshops, etc. So FNL was born of instingating local groups for green homes. Now there?s few 1000 gardens growing food, herbs & flowers around town & 100s of fruit trees dropping food in season.
About the gardening techniques of FNL, simply beautiful illustrations of natural elements of gardening: composting, planting, mulching, water cycles, microcosmos of soil fertility in urban ecology. It?s great for beginners to advanced. Her chapters on ?Free your lawn, Gaining ground, The Water cycle, Living soil, plants & polyculture, Seed stewardship, Ecological design, Beyond the garden, Into the community, Reaching out, Working together & The next generation? are simple, innovative & immense potentials of growing more healthy.
It contains vast resources on many all levels organic & cooperative. She write more personal, friendly & sensitive than pioneering books by Bill Mollison & David Homlgren on Permaculture. I?m amazed at how she?s gathered & explains 100s of ways to transform our homes & community into abundant green-belts around our yard. It guides us into sources of fertility, beauty, pleasure, green work & cooperating with Nature & our neighbors raising awareness about 100s of codependent cycles supporting our natural living anywhere on earth. naturallyours micheal sunanda Oness press
