Calling All Food Lovers!


Emma Cooper (Fluffius Muppetus) has started an exciting food growing bloggers e-book project. Here's an extract from her introductory post:

...Contributions could be on anything relevant – green gardening, composting, detailed cultivation notes on a particular plant, a report of a visit to a kitchen garden that’s open to the public, notes on how to deal with a pest or a disease, or just a collection of handy hints. It doesn’t have to be high brow, tales of gardening disasters could work too. We’ll also need photos or illustrations, and if you’re a gardening cook then perhaps you could share a recipe. Maybe you once wrote a blog post that you think deserves a more lasting audience. Each contribution would be attributed to the author, you can plug your blog/ website/ other projects/ favourite charity along the way...

This came hot on the heels of my Undecided post and seemed just the ticket to do something with my writing, so I signed up straight away. There's still plenty of room for you to join in too - food blogger or not judging from the above ideas - the more the merrier!

There's other ways you can participate, even if you don't want to write an article. For example, Emma's currently running a poll for you to help decide on the book's overall theme. The options are:
  • Open gardens, similar to my Open Garden blog last year
  • Allotment show classes
  • A kitchen garden
  • Other - let Emma know what you have in mind

So whether you're a budding author or you'd just like to help shape the book's future, either email Emma to join us or head on over to Emma's and have your say.

  2. Thanks for this snippet VP. I have had a quick peek at Emma's post, and will return tonight for a proper browse. It certainly sounds as if it will be a worthwhile project.

  3. It is a great project and might make a nice challenge considering my dissapointing harvests last year I might be able to supply plenty on disaster gardening!

  5. Hi everyone - does that mean you're potentially interested? :)

    I think there's plenty of scope - it need only be one article...

I love reading your comments and welcome thoughtful conversations :)

Comments aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites will be composted!

4/4/2014 - Anonymous comment spam came back with a vengeance today, so sadly I've had to halt this facility for a while for the sake of commenters who like to read what the genuine follow-up comments say.

If you're having problems leaving comments, you can contact me using the Contact Form at the foot of this page, or via vegplotting at gmail dot com, or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you. That way I can get things sorted.
