Give the Gift of SFG for Christmas

Post  WardinWake on 12/9/2012, 2:52 am

Give the Gift of SFG for the Holidays


Our SFG books make excellent corporate rewards, incentives and gifts. This is the gift that "keeps on giving" for a lifetime. Reading Mel's books and gaining the knowledge of Square Foot Gardening has literally changed lives across the globe.

For example, in India, Father Abraham was "gifted" Mel's original book on Square Foot Gardening. He took the idea and ran with it, creating community gardens that help the poor of his Indian community earn a living, grow their own life-sustaining fruits and vegetables, and gain a higher quality of life.


Everyday, worldwide, Mel's books are:

Helping disabled people garden
Helping school children learn life skills to become self-sustaining
Helping depressed, anxious people enjoy life more and become well
Helping the homeless, poor, and the unemployed
Feeding the masses with home-grown, healthy food


Let us help you with your Christmas shopping list! Give a gift with TRUE LASTING VALUE. When you gift the knowledge of SFG, you: give nourishment, teach self-reliance, help save the planet, and put us one step closer to ending world hunger.

Square Foot Gardening Answer Book – this is Mel's latest book – a brand new release! This reference manual covers hundreds of questions on SFG, pests, diseases, spacing, cultural controls, organic formulas for insecticides, and much more. You'll refer to it time and again.

Good Morning!
You seem to be the spokesperson so I'll just ask you. Has Mel made a new version of the New SFG that was printed, 2006 or so? I could not find the print date on the web site. These 10 improvements, are they something new? I will have to give it some thought. I re-bought the old SFG book for mine was borrowed many yrs ago.
I will let Victoria and the folks at the website know I could not find the print date. It does, sometimes, make a difference. I know the Old SFG book I just bought is not the same as the 1st OSFG I bought many yrs ago.
Thanks, Jo

I hope Ward returns soon but in the mean time I will let the new folks know that many things have changed since Mel wrote and presented to the world the Square Foot Gardening in 1981.


The All New Square Foot Gardening was published in February 2006.

The new book coming out next week is the Answer Book that Ward mentioned.

Amazon.com says the new "All New Square Foot Gardening, Second Edition: The Revolutionary Way to Grow More In Less Space" is not yet released, but we can pre-order it for shipping the minute it hits their warehouse. They even have a special when you order the All New SFG along with the new "SFG Answer Book."

Jo: As stated below the "ALL NEW SQUARE FOOT GARDENING BOOK" has a copyright date of 2005. There was a condensed/abbreviated version that came out several years ago that sold at Dollar General and other stores for a discounted price. The ANSFG Book has 271 numbered pages. Check your copy and see how many pages is in it.

The latest book, "The Square Foot Gardening Answer Book" can be ordered through the Foundation.

  Bless, Ward and Mary.

Howdy Jo: I am not an official spokeperson for the SFG Foundation, however, I and my wife are certified SFG instructors and have been active with the SFG method for several years and at one time I was a moderator for this forum. Having said that I do pass on information to the Forum (on a time available basis) that is printed in the SFG instructors newsletter. I also continue to moderate the vermiculite database for this forum.

  Bless. Ward and Mary.

The first book I bought was 'Square Foot Gardening' put out by Rodale, hardcover, with copyright date of 2005 and has over 340 pages. Its very detailed and I love the charts, drawings, and individual crop info. But it didn't mention Mel's Mix, just spoke about types of soil and how to amend them for best production; clayey, sandy, etc.
I got the "All New......" a couple of years ago and that one has the formula for Mel's Mix that he suggests and 270 pages. It has a copyright date of 1981,"Revised and additional comment copyright 2005."
So you see, there are different versions out there. Then there's the one sold at the Dollar Store.
Be careful which one you buy. Look in the index for 'Mel'sMix' and you'll find subcontents listed. That's the one you want.
