Frank and Vicky Giannangelo give the reader insights into organic gardening and also into coping with the world around us. Their backgrounds were not originally in gardening, but after they were married in 1986 they became interested in organic gardening, first in Arizona and later in New Mexico. They write that this is "the evolving story of our endeavors to bring about a planned harmony between ourselves, our world, and the people around us."
