Jane's Delicious Garden
“To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.”
With ever increasing food prices there is no better time to start growing food in your own garden than now.
Not only is organically grown produce far healthier for you and your family, growing your own food is a big step towards reducing your impact on the planet.
Jane Griffiths is a television producer, writer, artist and traveller who has been growing organic vegetables and herbs for more than fifteen years. Her best-selling book, Jane’s Delicious Garden has led to a vegetable revolution in South Africa, with thousands of home growers now following in her green footsteps.
Her second book, Jane’s Delicious Kitchen, is a collection of delicious recipes for making the most of seasonal abundance.
Jane's third book, Jane's Delicious Herbs, covers everything you need to know about herbs - from creative ideas for herb garden design, to hands-on advice for setting up and maintaining an organic herb garden. It includes over a hundred fun and useful recipes for making the most of the herb harvest.
In her latest book, Jane's Delicious Urban Gardening, she shows you just how easy it is to achieve a flourishing food garden, no matter how small your space - from containers to edible walls, raised beds to rooftops, community gardens to neglected pavements. It is packed with inspirational ideas and practical information on all aspects of urban eco living, including keeping urban bees, hens and aquaponic tanks, harvesting rainwater and recycling grey water and converting a chlorinated swimming pool into a wetland-filtered haven.
On this site, Jane shares her wealth of knowledge. Whether you want to attend a workshop or a one-on-one consultation, need advice, an online planner or best selling books, you will find everything you need to Get Growing!
