Preview of “A Lawn Chair Gardener’s Guide to a Balanced Life and World”


You’ve found the “back door” to my website. Please keep this link private. Although I take people wanting the content of my book for free as a compliment, I’d rather have people buy copies of the book from you!

I am offering my book to Blue Thumb partners at a wholesale price of $7.20 per book. It retails for $11.99. That means retailers make $4.79 (40%) profit on each book!

Summary of book:

Entertaining and easy to read, A Lawn Chair Gardener’s Guide offers a road map for earth-conscience gardeners who don’t have a lot of time to spend in the yard, but desire to grow edible and beneficial plants the entire family can enjoy. Mixing one part gardening, one part concern for the environment, and one part personal growth, author and Master Gardener Dawn Pape sets out to change the world, one yard at a time. Pape’s low-maintenance “Lawn Chair” gardens create habitat, conserve water, reduce the gardener’s carbon footprint, and eliminate the need for chemicals. Best of all, she makes it easy. Pape has a knack for explaining complex topics like organic gardening and companion planting in a very approachable way. You too can grow your own food, improve your little corner of the world, and transform your yard into an oasis.



“I’ve been gardening for years and have shelves of gardening books, yet this is the first one I’ve read that approaches gardening from a philosophical, moral, and practical viewpoint, covering everything from planning to preserving. It could be called the “Guilt-Free Gardener” for those like myself who love gardening but have a life full of other interests and activities.”  – Sue McKendry, self-sufficient gardener, global citizen
