New Guide Shows African Americans How to Start Their Own Organic Garden


Just in time for the spring season, a new publication has been released to help African American families start a home garden and grow their own food. It’s called Grow Your Own Food! The African American Guide to Starting Your Very Own Organic Garden. Available as an e-book exclusively at for just $2.49, the book teaches African American men, women, children how to grow their own organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices (like tumeric, ginger, and peppers)!

Home gardening is at an all-time high in America today. In fact, in the United States, 8 out of 10 households take part in some sort of home gardening activity. As a result, more and more African Americans are taking interest in their health and also growing their own organic food – that is, food without pesticides, chemicals and other harmful toxins. Many are growing their own organic food in their backyards or even on their balconies, and the black community especially seems to take interest in growing their own herbs and vegetables!

Grow Your Own Food! The African American Guide to Starting Your Very Own Organic Garden teaches readers:

* How to get started with your own personal garden
* How to do container gardening in small spaces
* How to grow organic fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs
* How to choose the best location for your garden
* How to use “green watering” techniques
