    This book is excellent and is a must-read for anyone who is interested in starting a garden or enhancing their current one! It is accessible, knowledgeable, and personal. Ms. Tucker has done an incredible job and creating an in-depth yet approachable guide to growing perennials.

    Some of my favorite aspects of GPF are:

    Accessibility: The book does a great job of describing jargon and breaking things down to the core components. There is also an excellent glossary and FAQ section. With that said this book is not simply for novices, even after spending many years gardening I have been able to take away a great deal and apply many practices to my own garden.

    Recipes: After each plant, there is an easy, yet delicious recipe. Everyone I have tried so far I have loved and I can’t wait to continue making these recipes.

    Personal: I love how Ms. Tucker weaves in personal anecdotes throughout the text. You truly gain a perspective of her background and passion. It is inspiring.

    Credit must also be given to the artist, Krishna Chavda, whose illustrations helped bring more life to this already wonderful book.

    I hope that this book is read and shared. The time I have spent in my garden has not only improved the lives of myself and my family but also the environment and this book only inspire me to spend more time in it.

    Needless to say, I will be purchasing the next book Ms. Tucker publishes without hesitation!

    Fantastic insight into growing perennials. Wonderful writing style as well.

  3. Monica Stanton says:

    As someone with no yard and not much experience growing food, I found this book to be very accessible and fascinating. I’m increasingly looking for ways to make my daily life align better with my values, and Tucker’s perspective made growing perennial foods seem not only possible but really meaningful. A great read no matter where you are in your journey!

  4. Jim Tucker says:

    Great book for the backyard gardener.

  5. Brooke says:

    As an amateur gardener, Growing Perennial Foods by Acadia Tucker has proved invaluable. (The soil test was especially helpful to me.) The simple pen and ink drawings are super cute and it’s written in clear and concise language. The recipes are very easy to follow and the ones I’ve tried are delicious! Highly recommended.

  6. Julia says:

    Tucker is a delightful guide for anyone who is excited to grow their own food but may not know how to get started. Growing Perennial Foods clearly walks readers through the important concepts, skills and steps for starting a garden of any size. Trucker’s joy in growing and eating her crops is absolutely infectious, and she writes with an approachable style that encourages and motivates her readers. I gobbled the book up, and when I put it down, my mind was swimming with exciting ideas of what I could grow and eat this year!

  7. Ezra Sassaman says:

    This book is a great option for beginners and experts when it comes to gardening in small spaces, or interested in gardening sturdy plants that can resist the effects of climate change. Included extensive, detailed descriptions of so many different herbs, vegetables, and fruits! This book includes a wide selection of recipes for a garden-to-table vibe as well! Everything you could ask for in a gardening book.

  8. Tia says:

    Acadia writes in a wonderful, conversational tone which makes it easy to connect with her as a reader. However, she still provides all the relevant information and facts to make her case for regenerative farming. I loved reading about her experiences in the Pacific Northwest and the Northeast, and it was helpful that she targeted the book towards beginners. On top of that, the illustrations are lovely and condense the written information into digestible summaries. I can't wait to try some of the recipes in the latter half of the book –– they look delicious!

  9. Naomi says:

    I loved this book! It is an engaging, comprehensive and easy to follow guide that teaches you how to grow plants in your own backyard. This is great not only for avid gardeners but for anyone who wants to produce some of their own food.

  10. Isabella Schnee says:

    Growing Perennial Foods is a wonderful introduction for the novice gardener or refresher for seasoned experts. Acadia’s bounty of knowledge comes through every page as she breaks down a selection of resilient herbs, fruits, and veggies to build harmony and soil health in any garden. She even includes common challenges and recipes for each item, as well as an FAQ section to tie up any loose ends. The book is informative, unpretentious, beautifully written with charming illustrations. A must-buy to add to your personal library or gift to others!
