'The Family Kitchen Garden' is an ideal book for families who would love to start or develop further their growing skills and gardening activities and include even the youngest members of the family.
Using stunning photography and emphasising what will be fun to grow and useful for a family, this beautiful book provides clear instructions on growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and cutting flowers. It notes 'child friendly' vegetables and gives tips on approaching gardening activities with children with month-by-month advice. There are also recipes using homegrown fruit and veg that kids will want to make and eat - from oriental summer rolls to parsnip crisps - and projects accessible to the whole family, such as building a ladybird nesting house and weaving a willow wigwam for climbing plants.
Ten years ago Karen Liebreich, Jutta Wagner, Annette Wendland and others began to restore the neglected seventeenth century kitchen garden at Chiswick House in West London, bringing in hundreds of local schoolchildren to work and learn and garden and eat. This book is the fruit of that experience.
