Kate has long been a proponent of going beyond organics to sustainable gardening.
With her new book she invites us to sit back, relax and let our garden offset some of our carbon footprint. Finally, here is the information we all need to make a real and positive contribution towards climate change, while doing what we love most – gardening!
Earth Repair Gardening guides the reader through the garden,
discussing options for reducing our environmental impact at every turn. We are encouraged to make those changes that suit us best when it comes to gardening more sustainably. This is not a one size fits all, it delves into the complexity of choices available to us, guiding us to the best outcome for our own situation. By doing less work, we can grow more as our gardens become working carbon sinks. This book teaches us about knowing, respecting and caring for the earth we live and garden on. This book will make you a better gardener, it will make your garden more fabulous, and it will help you make this world a better place.
Available now in paperback. Available from authentic online bookshops or at your favourite local bookshop. You can also purchase directly from me. ($35 pick up or $40 posted in Australia).
Retailers can source the book wholesale from me or directly from Lightning Source in Melbourne.

Thanks to everyone who came out and helped launch Earth Repair Gardening!
Through sales of the original drawings from the book (framed beautifully by Base Art and Framing) we were able to raise $500 to support the important work of the Frog Research Team, who came and inspired us all to do more for frogs.
Thanks also to local band, Jumping Fences, for the wonderful live music. Enjoy their song "Carry Me Away" on this little summary of a great night.
