Poppie’s wide range of titles is admirable and this Christmas one of our favourite ‘green’ books is;

Green Urban Living, by Janet Luke

Janet Luke BLA, MRP (Hons) holds a Masters degree in Environmental and Resource Planning and is a qualified landscape architect. Her book details the art of “gurbing” or ‘Green Urban Living’ - a way of working with nature to create a productive urban garden. It might just be a worm-farm on an apartment balcony or some herbs in pots but the basic principles are the same. Traditional Kiwi backyard methods sit alongside modern concepts like recycling, organics, using water sustainably to grow food, and keeping chickens and bees in an urban environment. The book also includes handy hints from green community forums, and easy and original ideas - from planting a tree, to building a chicken tractor, a garden bug Hilton hotel, or growing lolly flowers for the kids to enjoy.
