The book begins with a passage on observation in nature. Following, the chapters communicate necessary steps for gardeners to overcome the "brown thumb complex" and become transformed into a green thumbed steward. Each lesson throughout the book is accompanied by both anecdotal experiences of friends and experiments from the garden at Horizon Herbs. Subjects include creating live soil, composting, and building a greenhouse, shadehouse and tortuga (a raised bed technique designed after the turtle). The book covers the scope of the entire journey from sowing seeds to harvesting plants, while interrelating the natural cycles and seasons. It breaks down these processes into simple steps, and lays the information out in a down to earth way for gardeners of all backgrounds and experiences.
