Slow Gardening

A No-Stress Philosophy for All Senses and Seasons

by Felder Rushing

"Slow Gardening is a delight—a welcome stress-free approach, refreshing in its simplicity and firmly placing the gardener in their own space, at their own pace."

Sandy Felton, Reckless Gardener UK

Thanks to the resurgence of home and community gardening, more and more people are discovering the pleasure of biting into a sun-ripened tomato picked right off the vine, the earthy smell of freshly turned soil, and the cheerful harbingers of spring such as daffodils, irises, and pansies. But they are also discovering that gardening can be a heck of a lot of work. So what happens when keeping up with the weeds turns into a full-time job? What do you do when gardening becomes stressful?

Slow Gardening to the rescue! Inspired by Slow Food, an international movement that promotes local food systems and biological and cultural diversity, the slow-gardening approach can help us all appreciate and enjoy our gardens more, year in and year out.

Felder Rushing, a well-known and truly one-of-a-kind garden expert, offers this practical yet philosophical approach to gardening—one that will help you slow down, take stock of your yard, and follow your own creative whimsy in the garden.  

Slow Gardening will inspire you slip into the rhythm of the seasons, take it easy, and get more enjoyment out of your garden, all at the same time.
