From Down Under, two designers offer children-focused projects as well as ones for adults. Recycling is a major theme with a very easy "greenhouse" project for kids, moving up to a tall playhouse by repurposing apple crates. One of the authors has two adorable daughters who pop up in the photos. Most of the projects are creative and have a Difficulty/Materials sidebar for quick scoping. The encouragingly worded, DIY irrigation build out makes this investment seem do-able. That said, there are a couple projects that fell flat: using rain gutters as planters looks cool, except when you realize how much attention and watering will be required (shallow depth), and building out a tower for hops seems far more complicated than just giving them a sturdy trellis to climb on, along with good pruning. The final chapter moves into other ideas: recipes using your garden produce and seed-saving tips. Some US/Aussie vocab, where American readers learn that red worms = tiger worms; coolers = eskys; popsicle = icy pole; golden raisins = sultanas. Minor nitpicking: the use of white text on images is occasionally hard to read; the playful tone sometimes comes across as too cutesy.
