My mom is one active woman with a number of diverse interests. Even with all that, one of the first things I think of when I think of her is gardening - a hobby that she adores but rarely has the time to spend doing it. As an eco-lover, I can't help but think what fun she would have with an organic garden, let alone how much better the food would taste. Though we won't be able to spend this Mother's Day working in the garden, I plan to get her some great reading material on the subject.
Searching on Amazon.com, you will find over 700 results for "organic gardening" - that's a lot to go through! Loving to do research, I've gone through and found some of the best tolms for you to buy (or rent from your local library) to create the garden that nature intended:
+ Organic Gardening
