Jack Staub, popular lecturer, playwright, and avid gardener, is widely considered to be one of the country's leading experts on edible gardening. His celebrated vegetable, herb, and fruit gardens at Hortulus Farm have been featured in a wide variety of magazines as well as a series of books.

Renny Reynolds, founder of Renny & Reed in New York City, is one of the nation's most renowned entertaining, gardening, and lifestyle experts. His definitive book, The Art of the Party, is known as the party-planner's bible, and his event and garden designs have been featured in shelter, garden, and lifestyle magazines.


"Jack Staub and Renny Reynolds embody all the traits that one sees in the very best gardeners--fearlessness, passion, and an indefatigable desire to create a very personal version of paradise. Hortulus Farm is set squarely and joyfully at the intersection of man and nature." --James Brayton Hall, president and CEO, The Garden Conservancy

"Vision, tenacity, and a perfectionist's eye are the qualities that shine out from this account of a paradise garden created by one of America's foremost stylists. This is a thrilling and inspiring story." --Anna Pavord, author of The Curious Gardener and Landskipping

"A fabulous adventure in armchair gardening--all of the pleasure and none of the backache!" --Jinny Blom, landscape gardener and author of The Thoughtful Gardener

"Jack and Renny have set the stage for others to be inspired by their design excellence and story. Chasing Eden is not only a beautiful book; it will serve as a template for generations of future gardeners to create their very own Garden of Eden." --Paul B. Redman, president and CEO, Longwood Gardens

"Gorgeous."--Antiques Gardens Birmingham
