Cover Announced - Peace, Love and Gardening: Understanding Pacific Northwest Gardens

The final cover has been selected for our upcoming hardcover book, Peace, Love and Gardening: Understanding Pacific Northwest Gardens and Do-It-Yourself Projects to Beautify Them – From the Best of the Pecks' Columns.

This 160-page book from The Oregonian/OregonLive features the best of The Pecks' columns with illustrative full-color photography. Both a practical guide and a showpiece for your coffee table, this book is sure to delight all who love the Pacific Northwest.

Within these pages you will find guides to outdoor projects such as concrete steps, renewing your outdoor furniture, and creative plant containers. You will learn about helpful herbs and edible plants that you can grow at home.

Mosaics, water features, cobblestones, and patio areas are explored as extensions of your garden that can make the space your own. You will get a glimpse into nurseries around the Pacific Northwest, a look into the research and growth (as Dennis says, pun always intended) occurring in the plant industry today.

And of course you will see veggies, fruits, and flowers that will flourish in your Pacific Northwest garden, inside your home, or at your local community garden. All of this with the wit, wisdom, and warmth that is always encompassed in the Pecks’ columns.

The Oregonian/OregonLive’s proceeds from the book will go to support the High School Journalism Institute, a weeklong training camp for student journalists. Learn more at oregonhsji.org.
