Grow Organic: A Simple Guide to Nova Scotia Gardening 

Elizabeth Peirce (Nimbus)

Cookbooks and gardening guides shouldn't make you feel like a useless toad, or make you wish you lived in another city. But Peirce's Grow Organic: A Simple Guide to Nova Scotia Vegetable Gardening is a boost of confidence, even if you've only ever grown mould. Peirce doesn't expect that you know a till from a turnip, and she writes in a conversational, unpretentious tone. Best of all, she understands Atlantic weather, and that many of us don't have spaces bigger than a balcony. Referencing local suppliers and farmers, Peirce also includes recipes and canning instructions for your green harvest. Best of all, the book is well-designed with a bounty of colour photos. Instead of reading general books about locavore living, why not read a local book about growing your own food.
