Jeanne Nolan's education in food growing began in 1987, when she left home and joined a communal farm. That stint ended seventeen years later when she, now a single mother, returned to her parents' North Shore Chicago home. What began for Nolan as an urban retreat became a recommitment to the sustainable food movement. Starting with a small backyard vegetable garden, she expanded her efforts to an organic planting business and then ambitious outreach projects. Her "memoir plus" mixes reminiscences, ideas, and inspiration for homegrown food growers.
