About Hedgebish

This blog is a collection of all of my writing since Food Not Lawns was published in 2006. I write on a range of topics, and had pieces scattered on blogs and social media sites all over the interwebs, as well as piled up in folders at my house. This blog is an attempt to unite these writings under one roof. Here you will find memoir, essay, fiction, rants, poetry, songs, paintings, heaps of gorgeous garden pics, and how-to articles on gardening, writing, permaculture design, creative thinking, making money online. Plus other stuff.

To connect with my free online courses in permaculture and creative thinking, go to one of my websites:




and, to read Food Not Lawns, How to Turn Your Yard into a Garden and Your Neighborhood into a Community, for free, go here.

Thanks and see you soon!
