Best-selling author Sharon Hanna is in Burnaby on Sunday (Oct. 7) at 1 p.m. for a talk and book signing featuring her national bestseller, The Book of Kale: The Easy-to-Grow Superfood, at the Fall Harvest event at Garden Works in Burnaby.
The Book of Kale celebrates the vegetable that is a snap to grow almost anywhere, and that constantly proves itself as one of the most nutritious foods in existence. It contains more than 80 mouth-watering recipes, ranging from smoothies and scones to elaborate dinner items, and of course, includes tasty kale chips.
This garden-to-kitchen guide also gives readers all they need to know to grow this super-sustainable crop organically-as edible landscaping, on balconies and boulevards and even indoors. And, aspiring locavores take note: many types of kale can be grown all year round.
Hanna's great ideas for the garden and kitchen are relayed in her signature style, with lighthearted wit and an endearing hint of cheekiness. She will have you growing, eating and loving kale in no time.
Hanna is an expert gardener who writes, speaks and teaches in Vancouver, BC. She received the Mayor's Prize for Environmental Excellence in 2005 for her gardening program at Queen Alexandra School. Hanna contributes regularly to GardenWise magazine and GardenWiseOnline, and was a West Coast correspondent for Gardening Life.
