 About the Book 

If gardening is a cycle of growth, enrichment, decay, and rebirth, so is the nature of humanity: in our societies, our cultures, and our relationships. For the gardeners among us, its more than an analogy. Our gardens and our lives are inextricablyMoreIf gardening is a cycle of growth, enrichment, decay, and rebirth, so is the nature of humanity: in our societies, our cultures, and our relationships. For the gardeners among us, its more than an analogy. Our gardens and our lives are inextricably intertwined. Who we are- where we were born- our heritage- our family and friends- the events in our lives all play a role in the daily experiences on the piece of land we call our garden. That piece of land we have chosen (or which, in some cases, has chosen us) will in turn influence who we are, our relationships, and the events in our lives. Such is the culture of gardeners. The Garden That You Are explores that culture through the lives and stories of eight gardeners who all live within a square mile of each in other, in British Columbias bucolic and culturally diverse Slocan Valley. Some garden for a living, others garden as a passion, but all have fascinating personal histories and gardening lives. This beautiful book is illustrated with stunning colour photographs and peppered with anecdotes, history, gardening ideas, helpful advice, and even recipes. It is about everyone who is a gardener whether they know it yet or not.
