Reviews

"The Foodscape Revolution is eclectic and charming. Arthur's garden-scapes are accessible and inviting, and this book is a useful resource for those looking for simple ways to begin growing plants for food." Esther Jackson
"The Foodscape Revolution is Arthur's call to hoes, so to speak. She encourages gardeners to grow edibles along with their flowers and other ornamental plants. Some homeowners may have resistance from archaic zoning laws or inflexible neighbors if they suddenly decide to grow a half-acre of corn in their front yards. Arthur doesn't advocate digging up an entire property. But there is so much unused space in most suburban yards that can be used to grow carrots, kale and tomatoes." Jill Sell
"About a decade ago, Brie Arthur won a Yard of the Year award for her home landscape. That's not unusual, since she's a professional horticulturist. What was surprising was the design. Apparently, her North Carolina homeowners association hadn't noticed various vegetables and herbs planted in plain sight, alongside ornamental shrubs and trees. "Isolating veggie gardens to the backyard is so yesterday!" Arthur said, during the Winter Symposium at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. By matching a plant's needs with available spaces, gardeners can maximize the potential of their land, as well as their harvests. Foodscaping is the creative integration of edibles among ornamentals in a traditional landscape. " Lynne Jackson Kirk, author of Foodscapes: Where Beauty Co-exists with Bounty
"The Foodscape Revolution will be very inspiring for folks who want a yard that sustains them -- both physically and spiritually -- while keeping their neighbors and/or homeowners associations happy!" Susan Mulvhill
