A Patch from Scratch

Megan Forward

Jesse and Lewis want to grow their own fruit and vegies, just like people do on a farm. They’re going to dig and build, plant and grow, and when they’re finished they’re going to have a feast!

‘An engaging book, with beautiful illustrations, that helps show children the joys of growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh, seasonal, delicious food in their own backyard.’ Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation


Jesse’s family live in the suburbs outside a big city and are keen to start growing their own food in their backyard. So, the family draw up plans, build a chicken coop and create ‘no dig’ veggie patches from scratch to plant their freshly purchased seedlings in. Neighbours get involved through food swapping and lending their hands, while seeds are sown and the joys of germination marvelled at. With beautiful, soft colours and busy illustrations, Megan Forward has created a lovely story about the joys of gardening and spending time with family and friends as well as the delicious produce that can be grown at home. For ages 3 and up.
