Book review: “The Zero-Mile Diet”

The Zero-Mile Diet: a year-round guide to growing organic food

As soon as I heard of this book, I wanted to read it. I have finally been able to get my hands on it through my local library and read it right through in one evening.

This year-round guide to growing organic food, by Carolyn Herriot, is a sensible and inspiring guide to ways anyone can grow and preserve their own food. Herriot is passionate about food security, self-sufficiency and growing high-quality and safe food.

This book is full of interesting information, as well a great how-to manual. Although geared to the growing climates of the lower mainland area of British Columbia, many of the hints and techniques could be easily adapted to the many other growing regions of Canada.

I highly recommend this book: “The Zero-Mile Diet: a year-round guide to growing organic food,” Carolyn Herriot. ISNB 987-1-55017-481-6
