About the Author
Mel Bartholomew was the founder and inventor of the Square Foot Gardening method and the author of All New Square Foot Gardening, the best-selling gardening book in America for a generation. The guide has sold 2.5 million copies since Bartholomew wrote the book in 1981. He hosted a PBS TV show for five years, and then was telecast for three more years on the Learning Channel and Discovery Network. Bartholomew presided over the nonprofit Square Foot Gardening Foundation, which encourages every household around the world to have a small garden and eat fresh, healthy vegetables that are uncontaminated. He passed away in May, 2016.
Mel Bartholomew developed the innovative square-foot approach to gardening back in the 1970s, first publishing on the subject a few years later. His follow-up title, All New Square Foot Gardening, was published in 2005 and has since made home gardening accessible to millions. He currently resides in California, while the Square Foot Gardening Foundation is located in South Carolina. www.squarefootgardening.com
