Feldt has tapped the wisdom of urban gardeners from San Francisco to Boston, and she includes her tips and quotes in this invaluable manual.

It will inspire and empower the inexperienced gardener who lives on a fourteenth floor in Chicago, the expert roof gardener in Seattle, the civic-minded green thumb who envisions red geraniums under the neighborhood street trees, and the yardless urbanite who dreams of fresh vegetables from a community plot.
