“Growing, sharing and eating food we’ve grown is an act of caring – for ourselves, for others, for our cities and for the world we live in. Who could resist the call that ends this book: ‘What will you grow?” Globe and Mail

“First reaction after reading this inviting title: I wanna move to Vancouver … at least for a summer or two! Who wouldn’t want to be part of this ‘bustling city’ depicted in these colorful, diverse, delicious pages?” Book Dragon
