"Growers in search of fresh ideas will find plenty to chew on in this colorful tour of food gardens cultivated by a variety of horticultural heavy hitters. With 73 gardens shown (and DIY plans included for each), there's something for everyone: rooftop and balcony gardens, historically accurate vintage gardens, gardens to attract wildlife or accommodate microlivestock (e.g. bees and chickens), and even quirky themed spaces (such as a hot-dog-shaped garden that yields condiments for a classic Chicago-style dog). No matter what sort of garden you've got in mind, Groundbreaking Food Gardens provides "an abundance of creative advice" (Booklist)."
