You Grow, Girl

When Gayla Trail began gardening, she scoured magazines for material that spoke to growers like her: an income-challenged twentysomething with only her Toronto rooftop and sidewalk to tend. Finding nothing, she started a Web site to connect with people who share her "punk rock approach" to urban, organic gardening. The site has sprouted a companion book; both offer clever tips on everything from nontoxic pest repellents to plants that will thrive on a fire escape.
