The Urban Farm Handbook: City Slicker Resources for Growing, Raising, Sourcing, Trading and Preparing What You Eat
by Annette Cottrell and Joshua McNichols
In 2008 Annette Cottrell developed a midlife food crisis: she stopped buying industrial food altogether and turned her one-fifth acre Seattle city lot into an edible oasis. Joshua McNichol traces his love of homegrown food to his days as a latchkey kid, spending many afternoons eating ripe fruit in an ancient plum tree until his parents came home. He is a journalist (KUOW, NPR) who explores fundamentlal; questions about our relationship to food. Photographer Harley Soltes worked as a staff photographer for the Seattle Times for twenty years and now resides on an organic farm in Bow, Washington. Learn about growing fruit trees in city spaces — dwarfs, espalier and plenty of recipes.
