Title: The Alternative Kitchen Garden: An A-Z: 1

Author(s): Emma Cooper

The Alternative Kitchen Garden: An A-Z: 1
The Alternative Kitchen Garden is, according to author Emma Cooper, 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. There are many incarnations across the globe, but Emma s particular Alternative Kitchen Garden came into being in 2001 when she and her husband bought a new home in Oxfordshire and decided to grow a few pots of herbs on the patio. A self confessed cyber geek, she 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 this fascinating volume, illustrated with beautiful colour photos and arranged into easily accessible alphabetical order. Covering subjects as diverse as growing achocha (a lost Inca crop) to zucchinis, and forest gardening to xeriscaping, 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. A dual purpose book a concise and valuable practical guide, but at the same time a lovely little read for the deck chair or hammock! --Graham Burnett, Permaculture Magazine 61If you are new to growing food, relax and enjoy this book: It brings together the many spokes of growing edibles into one hub, drawing together techniques, processes and concepts, pleasures and possibilities, experiences and insights without sparing the failures. This is gardening as a whole and as it should be. If you are already converted, rest assured that this stream of thoughts and experiences, exciting ideas and fascinating facts make The Alternative Kitchen Garden a book to grow with, in all senses. There s a lot of talk at the moment that this, now, is the time to grow your own, but what we are seeing is a more enduring reconnection and fascination with what we eat. Since the 1950s, we have seen the wider population who used to grow at least a little of what they ate fall by the wayside (though allotmenteers and kitchen gardeners have never gone away). Undoubtedly our obsession with saving time and the availability of cheap food has played a key part in this, but the tendency of some garden writers to cloak the pleasure of growing in endless jargon, to dress up complex techniques as critical and create an expert/novice divide has done little to encourage and inspire. Happily Emma is helping to put this to rights. It is one thing to do , quite another, as Emma does, to multiply the value of doing by enthusing, inspiring, encouraging and enabling. Through her website, blogging, podcasts and now this book, Emma beautifully conveys the simultaneous inconsequentiality and enormity of growing: Planting a tree, while a matter of hole-digging and backfilling, engages us with our cultural heritage and becomes an opportunity for creativity and expression, as well as offering a gift to the future. And as you d expect if you're familiar with Emma's work, it's a generous book, linking people, organisations and the reader throughout, joining the dots as it goes. Many books present the reader with what feels like a mountain to climb. Emma s gift is in breaking down barriers, inviting us into the resulting space and presenting numerous ingenious opportunities to fill it. What and how we do this is up to each individual. Now I'm off to sow some quinoa. --Mark Diacono, from the Foreword, is author of Veg Patch River Cottage Handbook No.4Emma Cooper is an unstoppable force, one of life's positive people, and The Alternative Kitchen Garden sets out her inspiring personal vision of how to grow your own. --Emma Townsend, Independent on Sunday gardening columnist
