About the Author

Jo Ann Gardner has been growing, preserving, and baking with small fruit for over forty years. She and her husband, Jigs, operated a small hand/horsepowered farm on a remote peninsula on Cape Breton Island, Canada, which inspired books, articles, and lectures beginning in 1978. Together they wrote
Gardens of Use and Delight, describing how they transformed a bare farm into a lush landscape using simple methods. Jo Ann and Jigs now live in Westport,
New York, in the Champlain Valley where they have established a small farm with extensive gardens.
