Root, Phyllis.

Anywhere farm / Phyllis Root ; illustrated by G. Brian Karas. - 1st. ed. - Somerville, Mass. : Candlewick Press, c2017. - 1 v. (unpaged) : col. ill. ; 27 cm.

Rhyming text explains how a farm can be planted anywhere, including a community garden, using just soil, sunshine, water, and a seed. 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.
