A wonderful document of innovative and inspiring projects growing wild and edible plants in the urban landscape - packed with interest and inspiration, information rich and very accessible (includes references to Toronto Balconies Bloom). The author is the Founder Director of River of Flowers, a social enterprise with the mantra we feed the bees that feed us.
