Anywhere Farm

By Phyllis Root
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas

“ ‘You can grow your own farm anywhere’ is the empowering message of this inclusive picture book.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

You might think a farm means fields, tractors, and a barnyard full of animals. But you can plant a farm anywhere you like! A box or a bucket, a boot or a pan — almost anything can be turned into a home for green, growing things. Windows, balconies, and front steps all make wonderful spots to start. Who knows what plants you may choose to grow and who will come to see your new garden? Phyllis Root delivers a modern rhyming mantra for anyone hoping to put their green thumbs to good use, while G. Brian Karas’s cheerful urban illustrations sprout from every page. After all, anywhere can be a farm — all it takes is one small seed and someone to plant it.

  • An energetic celebration of the joys and satisfaction of growing your own food, no matter where you live — now in paperback
  • Ties in perfectly with the Eat Local/Locavore movement, as well as the Urban Farming movement which are both gathering steam and becoming main stream
  • A fun, rhyming readaloud perfect for storytime by master picture book writer Phyllis Root, now in paperback
