Loving companion planting πŸ˜‰ just spent the weekend with friends in Lutville with a small natural farm – pigs hens and milking goats – who have just started a little permie garden.we spent all weekend looking up companion planting tips – this book would make a great gift for them!

This would be a wonderful resource for the Container Garden Project in Malawi. The project is run by of Patrick Harry, who Patrick was a student in Ghent (Belgium) and took advice to start container gardening in his home country.
He is teaching and training youngsters in the container gardening technique, thus helping youth to grow fresh food (vegetables and fruits) with a minimum of irrigation water. The main objective of this project is to provide food security and to limit malnutrition, particularly of children.
