If you are a person of color many things in this book might rub you the wrong way. My husband had to read this for his ESL class and he was laughing at how inaccurately his country was described. The author clearly meant well but betrays his biases through bizarre, unnecessary details. For example: cliched broken English in a thought narrative for an Asian character, a young Black man from Cleveland describing himself as a "jungle beast", not one but two pregnant Latina teens, and a white savior-esque character who voluntarily moves to a poor urban neighborhood to play peacemaker after retiring from the UN. There are some touching moments in the narratives but these issues seriously detracted from my enjoyment of the book.

This book was a very enjoyable and quick read. I love to read about the life of each person who participates in this community garden. The garden not only allows people to connect to their own cultural roots but also to others in their community.

It took me an hour to read, but the book was good. Following the lives of several people in Cleveland and how they come to find a plot of land and start to plant seeds for the community garden. Great book. I enjoyed it!

Picked this up since it was about a Cleveland neighborhood. What a delightful surprise, especially since it is written by a Californian. Short book, quick read, really warms your heart.
