Out this month, garden blogger Dee Nash’s primer on urban gardening.

Urban farming has sprouted across the nation, as people have increasingly sought to save money, eat local, enjoy healthy meals and have less environmental impact. Having spent years speaking and teaching about gardening, Dee Nash, the voice behind the blog Red Dirt Ramblings, has written a movement how-to guide. Her new book, The 20/30-Something Garden Guide: A No-Fuss, Down and Dirty, Gardening 101 for Anyone Who Wants to Grow Stuff (St. Lynn’s Press, 2014), is a concise, visual manual that gives amateur gardeners—from brown thumbs to hipster vegans to would-be city homesteaders—all the basics. Through illustrations, advice, and tips, Nash provides insights into the rewards, challenges and season-to-season realities of “farming” balconies, decks, patios and yards. $17.95 ($13.55 on Amazon).
