Things My Garden Taught Me

With a few pointers from literature

Gabrielle Baldwin

Things My Garden Taught Me
Most of the time, I can stand in the middle of what I have made and know that it is good.

Like every adventure, Things My Garden Taught Me is a tale of battles won and lost. With whimsy, reflection, and literary allusion Gabrielle Baldwin explores what she has learnt about life and death from her South Gippsland bush garden.

Praise for Things My Garden Taught Me:
'An intelligent and thoughtful gardener, Baldwin brings a disciplined and philosophical mind to her writing. After a career in academe, she relishes the physical labour of planting and maintaining her garden.' - Deborah Bogle, Advertiser

'Entertaining and beautifully produced.' - Dr Penny Hanley, Australian Garden History

Gabrielle Baldwin has taught literature and conducted educational policy research at several Victorian universities. She now divides her time between inner-city Melbourne and South Gippsland, where she and her husband Peter have established a native garden.
