March 2012 Giveaway: “Project Garden” by Stacy Tornio

March is here!

And with it comes a fresh book giveaway at

This month’s featured book is Project Garden: A Month-by-Month Gudie to Planting, Growing, and Enjoyoing ALL Your Backyard Has to Offer by Stacy Tornio, a certified master gardener and editor of Birds & Blooms.

I received a review copy of the book last week and it’s fantastic, filled with all kinds of information to help families get outside and get growing. It’s perfect for all families but especially homeschool and afterschool families in search of simple projects. As the back cover suggests, “The family that gardens together, grows together.” I think there’s some truth to that.

Stacy will be here next week for a guest post, but if you want this delightful little book, here come the rules.
