Slow Down and Grow Something
If you’re a gardener or plant enthusiast, there’s a good chance you follow Urban Growers on Instagram (if you don’t, here’s your invitation). This edible garden company designs, installs and maintains food gardens on Australia’s east coast and their Instagram account offers education on all things green, specifically edible gardens and urban farms. Slow Down and Grow Something is everything that’s great about Urban Growers, neatly packaged in a beautiful 240 page book. It’s been described as a blueprint for living the good life in the city and offers education on how to grow the easiest food plants in small spaces and recipes to make the most out of them.
The brains behind the book are horticulturalist Byron Smith and founder of Smack Bang Designs (because one incredible project wasn’t enough), Tess Robinson. If you’ve ever dreamt of growing your own lush and bountiful garden but only have a small space, rooftop, courtyard or balcony to do it in, Byron and Tess will help you get there. With the joy of gardening and the relaxed lifestyle it brings on the rise, there’s no better time than the present to equip yourself with the right knowledge and turn yourself into a verified green thumb.
