Maker Comics: Grow a Garden! (Hardcover)
Maker Comics is the ultimate DIY guide. Inside Grow a Garden, you'll find illustrated instructions for six gardening projects!
Will, Violet, and Basil must be the unluckiest students at the Garden Gnome Academy. They've been stuck with Mr. Butternut, the school's most unpopular (and unusual) teacher. Will and his friends have to learn about soil and compost while their classmates get to study exotic plants and butterflies. Although things get a little messy (and stinky) in his class, Mr. Butternut does know a thing or two about growing delicious veggies.
Follow the easy step-by-step instructions in this book and you can make:
A compost bin
A growlight shelf
A cold frame
A container garden
