Apartment Gardening by Amy Pennington covers everything readers need to start and tend their own urban gardens, including DIY projects and recipes for food and homemade sundries.  Whether the free space is a large balcony or a tiny mason jar, gardeners will enjoy this fresh look at self-sustenance on a small scale.

Food enthusiast Amy Pennington is the creator and owner of GoGo Green Garden, an edible gardening business wherein she builds, plants and tends edible gardens for city folk in their backyards. In March of 2009 Amy launched, a garden website that pairs city gardeners with unused garden space via an online matching site. She has been featured on Whole Living Martha Stewart Sirius Radio and in national and international publications including Sunset Magazine and the Toronto Star. Amy is a regular contributing writer to Edible Seattle, a bi-monthly food-focused magazine highlighting the culinary bounty of the Puget Sound region. Her first book, Urban Pantry, was published in April 2010. She lives in Seattle.
