Grow Gardeners. Kid-Tested Gardening with Children

No Guff Press, 2015

By Emma Biggs + Steven Biggs, Illustrated by Emma Biggs

If you ever felt it was impossible to do yard work, grow a garden, and teach kids how to garden, this book is for you.

In four steps—Playing, Exploring, Collecting, and Growing—my nine-year-old daughter, Emma, and I demonstrate how easy it is to encourage young green-thumbs.

Emma did the illustrations and captions. I wrote and took pictures. Together, they excite children about the garden and outdoors.

Grow Figs Where You Think You Can't 

No Guff Press, 2012
By Steven Biggs

In this book, a Fig Pig (me!) who lives in a coldish climate, shares his passion for figs so that others in fig-unfriendly places can see that growing this fabulous fruit isn’t rocket science.

Tips, techniques, and anecdotes—along with the insights of fig experts in North America and the UK—make fig growing easy for people who live in places where they think they can’t grow figs.

BUY NOW. C$19.95 + Shipping/Handling/Tax. (Ships via Canada Post. For courier, contact me for a price.)

No Guff Vegetable Gardening

No Guff Press, 2011
By Steven Biggs and Donna Balzer
Illustrated by Mariko McCrae

I co-wrote this vegetable gardening book with Calgary horticulturist Donna Balzer. Our goal was an opinionated, fun book. We got it. Slightly irreverent, this graphic-novel-meets-gardening-book empowers readers to make their own decisions in the vegetable garden because Donna and I talk frankly about issues…and don’t always agree.
