With over 2.5 million copies in print, the Square Foot Gardening books are among the most popular gardening books ever published. The Foundation, working with publisher Cool Springs Press, an imprint of Quarto Publishing, has created a revised and expanded edition, All New Square Foot Gardening: MORE Projects – NEW Solutions – GROW Vegetables Anywhere 3rd Edition that will be published in Fall 2018.
This new edition, including over 150 new photos and illustrations makes it easier than ever to achieve nearly-foolproof results in virtually any situation: 100% of the produce; 20% of the water; 5% of the work.
Perfect for experienced Square-Foot-Gardeners or beginners, the original method created by Mel has not changed in any significant way with this new 3rd edition of All New Square Foot Gardening. It remains: build a box; fill it with Mel’s Mix; add a grid.
Along with the classic steps, the book is chock-full of interesting and compelling new information, such as:
- Adding trellises and archways
- Substituting with new materials
- Adding automatic watering systems
- “Thinking Outside the Box” with creative configurations
- Square Foot Gardening in dense urban areas with little or no yard
- Square Foot Gardening with kids
- Crop protection
The new book will, undoubtedly, inspire an entire new generation of Square Foot Gardeners, continuing Mel’s Mission to help end world hunger.
