MEDIA REVIEWS

People said, "You can't grow a forest garden in this climate!" Martin Crawford resoundingly proved that you can and that it can be abundant.
They said, "That's all very well but what can we do with all the foods that come out of the forest garden?" Caroline Aitken has shown convincingly what you can do and that it can be delicious.

-- Patrick Whitefield

Food From Your Forest Garden is beautiful, inspiring and informative, the recipes are delicious yet undaunting, there are ideas aplenty and most importantly, whether you have a forest garden or just a few pots, it makes you want to grow some of what you eat.

-- Mark Diacono
