The Alternative Kitchen Garden is an evolving idea of what a kitchen garden could be in the twenty first century - organic, environmentally sustainable, resilient and about relocalising at least some of our food production. Its also a place not only for learning and practising growing skills but for enjoying ourselves and having fun. Both an ideal companion for anyone getting dirt under their fingernails for the first time and full fascinating ideas and experiments for the adventurous gardener.
A self confessed 'cyber geek', Emma began to document the transformation of her 'ropey old lawn with potholes and brambles' into a fertile and abundant permaculture plot via internet radio and a popular blog site. Eight years on her postings and stories have been collected in here, illustrated with beautiful colour photographs and arranged into easily accessible alphabetical order.

Covering subjects as diverse as growing achocha (a lost Inca crop) to zucchinis Emma's style is light and friendly yet at the same time informative and based on personal experience - you feel you could actually be sitting in the garden chatting face to face as she shares her knowledge and experience, especially when she veers off into non directly garden related tangents such as osteopathy and freecycling.
