An entire Resource Directory Chapter with contact information is dedicated to helping those wishing to find safer, non-toxic ready-made gardening and home alternatives. A wonderful gift for Mother s or Father s Day, Christmas, birthdays, bridal registry, PTA groups, organic gardener networks and pet owners. About the Author Author, Tui Rose, began listening to handy hints on the radio in New Zealand since the age of 10, before the family on a dairy farm got TV. As a married woman, she and her husband were avid gardeners and landscapers. Neighbors and weekend drivers would drive slowly by and even stop to admire and photograph their garden scene, a little paradise. Tui was tragically widowed in her early 30 s and left to raise two young children as a single mother. She worked as a registered nurse, having broad experience for over 35 years. Tui is widely travelled, having been accepted for the prestigious position of private nurse for Lady Winston Churchill in London from 1972 to 1973. When Tui, sustained a spinal cord injury requiring surgeries 15 years ago, she could no longer work in her trained capacity, so turned her attention to prevention by drawing upon her medical knowledge and experience to research non-toxic alternatives in her goal to provide a series of books for her upcoming "Wholesome Living Collection." Preventing illness and disease, and making life easy, safe, natural and thrifty is her prime focus. Tui is also author of an Amazon 5-star book and multiple times publisher s best monthly seller titled: "Going Green Using Diatomaceous Earth How-To Tips." She is the first author in the world to write a consumer book on this subject, a companion book to natural, non-toxic gardening.

The environmental benefits of gardens are well-known: trees and plants capture carbon emissions, help to moderate the urban climate, promote health and well being, and help reduce energy consumption. But some garden practices are downright damaging, like using leaf blowers and other power tools, installing impermeable paving, and choosing plants that require excessive water or artificial fertilizers. High-Impact, Low-Carbon Gardening is a one-stop reference for making a garden more green. From simple actions like composting household waste, installing a water barrel, or eliminating pesticides to more long-term investments like choosing permeable, locally sourced paving, and planting the most water-wise plants, there are hundreds of large and small choices home gardeners can make to reduce the environmental impact of designing, planting, and tending a garden. High-Impact, Low-Carbon Gardening goes beyond organics and compost and gives serious gardeners all the information they need to make their garden truly green.
