Going Native Now Fits Into Any Gardening Budget

Today’s the day! The official release date of the second edition of my gardening guide Going Native: Small Steps to a Healthy Garden! 

A New Book is Born

going native, native plant, gardening guideAlthough I love the color images in the first edition, the cost of printing a full-color book is crazy expensive, meaning I had to charge a hefty fee for the book. Because the message in Going Native of turning our gardens in a chemical-free, wildlife-friendly direction is important to me I wanted to find a way to make the book easier to fit into your gardening budget.

And so the second edition of Going Native was born and swaddled into a new eye-catching cover. This edition is in black and white, making it very affordable while still containing the same great information, tips and tricks as the first edition (see below for more about the book and reader reviews).
