by Camille T. Dungy
A mother, Black woman, and poet, Camille Dungy describes her seven-year struggle to transform her yard in the predominately white community of Fort Collins, Colorado, into a garden of herbs, vegetables, and flowers that benefit the environment. She resists the community’s strict restrictions about what can be grown by residents, and cultivates a garden that rewilds the space. “A significant, beautiful, meditative, and wholly down-to-earth memoir with high appeal for book groups and nature lovers.” ~ Booklist, starred review
