With her husband Mike once again behind the camera, Dee Pigneguy has reshaped and augmented her immensely popular, and now sold out book, Growing Gardeners, into this inspirational resource for anyone interested in growing their own healthy food while improving the health of their family and our own planet, Earth.
Dee is an
ex-teacher and author of several books, including Feed
Me Right: Nutritional Know-how and Body Science and Nature's
Her interest in nutrition, healthy food and
healthy bodies developed as she grew up on a remote coastal property
in British Columbia,
Canada. Her mother
engaged all her children in their self sufficient lifestyle - growing vegetables and fruit, raising pigs, chickens and ducks, and
milking goats. At low tide they gathered clams and oysters and often
source of gardening information as a child was the huge garden her
mother kept to feed the family. As a result she and her siblings all
learned to garden and cook at an early age. This knowledge was
increased by people Dee
encountered while belonging to the Soil and Health
Association of New Zealand and the Auckland Herb Society. As well as
organised garden visits, Esther Dean, Kay Baxter and Mick Reed have
all contributed to her knowledge over the years, and she has drawn
on organic gardening magazines especially Organic New Zealand and
Koanga Gardens' seed catalogues.
