San Francisco, CA – Climate activist and regenerative farmer Acadia Tucker is releasing Tiny Victory Gardens: Growing food without a yard, her third book on gardening in ways that are good for the planet.
This is not a book about growing geraniums. Tucker, who once ran a successful market garden, focuses on how to grow meaningful amounts of food without a yard, and year round if one would like.
In this age of social-distancing and rapid climate change, there has never been a better time to turn even the smallest windowsill into a patch of food resilience. “Cultivating your own food source is a meaningful way to promote resilience in your household,” says Tucker, “and by sharing your knowledge with neighbors, it can do the same for your community.”
Readers learn how to select the right container (there are wrong ones), build microbe-rich living soil, support pollinators, and cultivate a bountiful mini farm, indoors and outdoors. The book includes profiles of 21 container crops, along with recipes like “Salsa Fresca” and “Beans, Bees, and Butterflies,” for planting food gardens.
Says Jes Walton, from Green America: “This book digs into the positive impact that even a tiny garden can have on your well-being, community food security, and local biodiversity. A great read for those interested in gardening, and not sure where to start.”
