Cooking From the Garden
Smith and Hawken: The Gardeners' Community Cookbook, by Victoria Wise (Workman Publishing, 1999; $19.95) is based in the community garden. The author collected recipes from community gardeners the world over, and then tested and compiled the best into a cookbook. It's a great source when you are overrun with arugula or zucchini; and best of all, a share of the proceeds from book sales are donated by Smith and Hawken to Second Harvest, the largest food bank in the country.

Web Finds

Victory Garden
The Victory Garden Web site is certainly not new, but it is a treasure in many aspects. The Home Remedies for the Garden page is worth a visit. Spend some time wandering through the site, and you will always come up with something you can use.
