stuff mondays – grown and gathered book


Fancy learning how to grow your own veggies and cook up a delicious storm with them, too? Then you might like to win a copy of this pretty (and informative) new book.

Green-thumbed frankie pals Matt and Lentil Purbrick believe in old-school traditions. Really old-school traditions. In fact, as far as they’re concerned, the best way to live is in harmony with nature: growing your own veggies, foraging for wild foods and raising your own animals, like chickens and bees. 

For those of us who are less acquainted with the ways of the sun, soil and baby chicks (but are rather interested in improving their knowledge), Matt and Lentil have written a comprehensive guidebook to traditional living, called Grown & Gathered. Over 352 pages, the former city dwellers explain everything you need to know to transform your own wee patch of the world into a fruitful garden, bursting with seasonal foodstuffs. They’ve crammed over 100 recipes in there, too, so you can whip up a bunch of tasty treats from your homegrown goodies. Yummo!

Head this way to nab a copy of the book for yourself, or send us your name and address – we’ve got five copies to give away.
