Homesweet Homegrown Authors Launch Kickstarter Campaign to Spread the Word About Growing Organic, Non-GMO Food

April 4, 2012

PHILADELPHIA, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Homesweet Homegrown: How to Grow, Make and Store Food, No Matter Where You Live, is an essential guide to DIY food for the modern homestead. Written by Grow Indie.com founder Robyn Jasko, and illustrated by Jennifer Biggs, this new book published by Microcosm Press is empowering people everywhere to grow their own organic, non-gmo food, whether they live in a high-rise city apartment or an acre in the suburbs.

The authors recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their summer tour to host signings, events and garden demonstrations across the country, and get the word out about how easy it is to grow your own food.

Through April 30, visitors can purchase an exclusive set of rewards that include everything they need to get growing this summer, including signed copies of Homesweet Homegrown, and organic, non-gmo seed sets.

Each seed collection (Herb Garden, Container Garden, Heirloom Garden, and Kaleidoscope Garden) includes 5 packs of organic, non-gmo seeds that were handpicked by the authors as no-fail varieties that can be easily grown anywhere. All proceeds from the Kickstarter campaign will be used towards the summer tour, and planned stops include Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Boulder, Chicago, New Orleans, Asheville, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York.

Homesweet Homegrown features eight comprehensive sections (Know, Start, Grow, Plant, Plan, Make, Eat, and Store), in a 128-page guide that takes you through all the steps of gardening, canning, storing, pickling, and freezing your own homegrown food. In addition to raising awareness of GMOS, organics and heirlooms, it also features grow guides for 25 vegetables, easy recipes to use your harvest, DIY garden projects, plans for starting a garden no matter where you live, and more.

Author Robyn Jasko is available for interviews, gardening project and recipe demos. Review copies of the book are also available.
