Organic Container Gardening for All
“Organic Container Gardening for All: From kids to seniors, Anyone can Grow Herbs and Veggies in Containers” is a book about organically growing food in containers and it was written to help the new gardener, especially those currently unable to feed their children adequately on a daily basis, learn simple ways to get an organic gardening going quickly.

In today’s economy, food self-sufficiency is very important as more and more people want to know where their food is coming from and how it is being grown. Food self-sufficiency can start with learning how to grow a container garden and create a sustainable future for the next generation.

Amelia Writes
Sun City, AZ
Early in my writing career, I wrote a regular column in the trade magazine for sales professionals, it was titled JUMP. I was with JUMP from 1993 to the end of 1994.

My first book “Surviving College,” was published by MiraCosta College Press in 1996. After co-authoring the book, I focused my energies on writing for newspapers and magazines.

In the fall of 2005 I joined the consumer magazine “Bed & Breakfast America” as a traveling staff writer. After they went from a print magazine to strictly an online magazine, I cut back on accepting assignments in 2009 when I contracted to create print-on-demand books for the Iowa Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers Association. I eventually left the magazine upon moving in 2010 to Sun City, AZ.

Today I focus my writing topics on gardening, cooking, and hospitality as these are topics that are dear to my heart and writing on them is a labor of love.
