    Want great-tasting veggies from your own garden but cringe at the thought of doing all that back-breaking work of maintaining your garden? Or if you’re currently gardening with chemicals and have decided that gardening organically would give you plants with better nutrition and better taste, but you don’t want to hang up your tools for seven years waiting for your soil to heal? GREAT NEWS! No Work Urban Vegetable Gardening Simplified by Joyce Zborower provides simple, easy-to-follow instructions for building and planting a new organic gardening bed right over an old chemical bed, a grassy spot that’s never been planted before, a rocky area, or even in a raised planting bed, so you won’t have to bend over to harvest your goodies. And once the bed is ready and planted, any further work on your part is very minimal. Is it really “no work?” No, but it’s as close as you’ll ever get without hiring someone to take care of it for you.

    Renowned naturalist and bestselling author Jane Goodall examines the critical role that trees and plants play in our world. In her wise and elegant new audiobook, Jane Goodall blends her experience in nature with her enthusiasm for botany to give listeners a deeper understanding of the world around us.Long before her work with chimpanzees, Goodall’s passion for the natural world sprouted in the backyard of her childhood home in England, where she climbed her beech tree and made elderberry wine with her grandmother. The garden her family began then is a place she continues to enjoy today. Seeds of Hope takes us from England to Goodall’s home-away-from-home in Africa, deep inside the Gombe forest, where she and the chimpanzees are enchanted by the fig and plum trees they encounter. She introduces us to botanists around the world, as well as unique places for plants, such as The Millennium Seed Bank, where one billion seeds are preserved. This world of plants, with all its mysteries, shows us how we can heal our bodies and the planet itself.Looking at the world as an adventurer, a scientist, and a devotee of sustainable foods and gardening, Jane Goodall delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards.

    In April 2009 First Lady Michelle Obama planted a kitchen garden on the White House’s South Lawn. As fresh vegetables, fruit, and herbs sprouted from the ground, this White House Kitchen Garden inspired a new conversation all across the country about the food we feed our families and the impact it has on the health and well-being of our children. Now, in her first-ever book, Mrs. Obama invites you inside the White House Kitchen Garden and shares its inspiring story, from the first planting to the latest harvest. Hear about her worries as a novice gardener; learn about her struggles and her joys as lettuce, corn, tomatoes, collards and kale, sweet potatoes, and rhubarb flourished in the freshly tilled soil; and get an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at every season of the garden’s growth. You can also try the unique recipes created by White House chefs and made with ingredients just picked from the White House garden and learn from the White House Garden team about how you can help plant your own backyard, school, or community garden. Mrs. Obama’s journey continues across the nation as she shares the stories of other gardens that have moved and inspired her: Houston office workers who make the sidewalk bloom; a New York City School that created a scented garden for the visually impaired; a North Carolina garden that devotes its entire harvest to those in need; and other stories of communities that are transforming the lives and health of their citizens. In American Grown, Mrs. Obama tells the story of the White House Kitchen Garden, celebrates the bounty of gardens across our nation, and reminds us all of what we can grow together.

    John Laroche, an obsessed Florida plant dealer, is willing to go to any lengths to steal rare and protected wild orchids and clone them—and all for a tidy profit. But the morality of Laroche’s actions do not drive the narrative of Orlean’s strange, compelling, and hilarious book. She is much more interested in the spectacle this unusual man creates through his actions, including one of the oddest legal controversies in recent memory, which brought together environmentalists, Native American activists, and devoted orchid collectors. She follows Laroche deep into Florida’s swamps, tapping into not only the psyche of the deeply opinionated Laroche but also the wider subculture of orchid collectors, including aristocrats, fanatics, and smugglers whose obsession with plants is all-consuming. Orlean portrays the weirdness of it all in wonderful detail, but, ultimately, the book is primarily about passion itself and the amazing lengths to which people will go to gratify it.
