Reviews, Quotes & Related Press
Garden State: An urban farmer with a cultlike following explains the simplest way to grow your own food -O Magazine, March 2010 (See online version.)
“Reminiscent of the cookbooks of Elizabeth David, her stories of daily life as a city gardener educate and entertain in a voice all her own. It’s also a beautiful and well-designed book, liberally illustrated with Trail’s own sublime photographs taken in her tiny, perfect Toronto rooftop garden and only slightly larger community plot.”-Edible Toronto, Spring 2010 (See online version.)
Seeds of Next Season's Meals: Gayla Trail, 'Grow Great Grub' -Washington Post Express, Feb 26, 2010 (See online version.)
“The conversational tone of the text demystifies mulching, composting and fertilizers without talking down to the reader. … It is like getting gardening advice from your friend who has been gardening for a years and is happy you’re finally jumping on the bandwagon.”
“Lastly, I want to mention the book’s design because good gardening books are common, but well-designed gardening books are rare. The book’s design is wonderful, probably the most beautiful book on vegetable gardening I’ve ever seen.” - Chicago Garden, Chicago Now
“There’s a lot packed into just a couple hundred pages, including lots of great tips, explainers and projects, like how to make your own self-watering container. The photos — by Trail and her partner, Davin Risk — are beautiful and inspiring.” - Peggy McMullen, The Oregonian
“Cooper also notes the gritty, hip nature of many of the book’s photographs—‘it’s gardening for newbies without alienating the tattoo crowd.’” - Lucinda Dyer, Publishers Weekly
“Grow Great Grub is a book I would like to see being used by teachers and children to explore the possibilities that may exist around them. ” - Urban Preschool
