I really enjoyed this book, Steele took a lot of my interests and combined them in a very succinct and useful way. Being a landscape designer, dating an architect, living in New York City, as a member of Slow Food USA, and other foodie groups and a guerrilla gardener to boot. Before being introduced to this book, I found myself looking at all of the issues covered and wishing there was a cohesive narrative. I learned a lot from the book especially since it has written from a very strong British view point. The final call to action was not as inspiring to me as it would have been if I had read the book when it was released a few years ago or if I wasn't already steeped in gardening in the city and helping others enjoy the riches of preparing meals from whole ingredients but I think it was passionate and moving all the same. My cup goes up to you Ms. Carolyn Steele, salute! and thank you!
