Forget the 100-mile eat-local diet; try the 300-square-foot-diet -- grow squash on the windowsill, flowers in the planter box, or corn in a parking strip. Apartment Gardening details how to start a garden in the heart of the city. From building a window box to planting seeds in jars on the counter, every space is plantable, and this book reveals that the DIY future is now by providing hands-on, accessible advice. Amy Pennington's friendly voice paired with Kate Bingham-Burt's crafty illustrations make greener living an accessible reality, even if readers have only a few hundred square feet and two windowsills. Save money by planting the same things available at the grocery store, and create an eccentric garden right in the heart of any living space.

Might be nice as a gift, tucked into a basket of gardening supplies, for someone who had never grown anything before.

This is a good quick start guide. But...I'd rate this: Apartment dwellers-disgression advised. Make sure it's OK to house honey bees on your patio/deck! Make sure that water/dirt from your containers doesn't spill onto someone else's doorstep or patio etc.

Local author--so the advice she gives is actually relevant to PNW gardeners. It's a fun how-to on getting started in gardening. I didn't feel it was particularly revolutionary, but certainly did get me excited for gardening in my little urban space.
