Su questo libro:
By turns enchanting and inspiring, Stronger Than Dirt is the true story of one couple?s successful attempt to build, from the ground up, an entirely new way of life.
When Kim Schaye came home to Brooklyn from her writing job at a top New York City daily to find a breathtaking vase of wildflowers on her dining room table, she had no idea the bouquet would challenge her and change her life so completely.
Her husband, Chris Losee, had gathered those glorious blossoms from one of the last working farms in the area that summer day, thus planting a seed in his mind to buy, start, and live on a farm.
Stronger Than Dirt is Chris and Kim?s tale, told from the alternating viewpoints of a husband and wife who left behind the grind of their big city life to build what became a thriving flower farm. Battling mud, bugs, snow, deer, and the ever-encroaching weeds, while facing the dropped jaws of their friends and family, Kim and Chris created a successful business with perseverance and a good dose of humor.
Whether you have a passion for gardening, a taste for the perfect tomato, or simply a willingness to take a chance, Stronger Than Dirt is sure to entertain as it reveals the beauty and bounty that embracing the unknown can bring.
L'autore: KIMBERLY SCHAYE and CHRISTOPHER LOSEE live and farm in Columbia County, New York. In the summer and autumn, you?ll find them selling their beautiful wildflower bouquets and fresh produce in greenmarkets in New York City and the Hudson Valley region of New York State.
