Summer Reading


I’m a gardener. My mother would find that amusing. Her love of being outside, of “playing in the dirt,” was a source of teasing in my younger years. Now I’m the one who can’t wait for spring and the opportunity to develop my garden.
 
For this reason and so many more, I’ve loved reading Brian Sellers-Petersen’s new book, Harvesting Abundance: Local Initiatives of Food and Faith. Brian’s book (with beautiful full-color photographs) introduces readers to twenty-four Episcopal-related gardens from California to Connecticut. 
 
Whether your parish has room for a full garden, space for bee hives, a parking lot crying out for a Saturday morning farmer’s market, a diocesan conference center, or simply an interest in composting tea bags and coffee grounds after Coffee Hour, Harvesting Abundance has a story—engaging and beautifully written—to capture your imagination.
 
You don’t even have to wash the dirt off your hands before reading.
