"Growing food in the city is, as author Deborah Hodge and photographer Brian Harris make clear in this picture book, about more than providing food for hungry people. It is also a burgeoning social movement that “seeks to improve our cities. Gardens create green space and beauty. They provide a home for wildlife and keep us connected with nature. They encourage co-operation and community building.” To the extent that it is about growing food per se, then, “most importantly, urban agriculture allows us to grow our own food and control how it’s produced.”
