The founder of the Green Patch community allotment in Kettering has published two books about gardening experiences.

David Sanders worked with residents, schools and disadvantaged adults between 2001 and 2006 before moving to Hong Kong.

And now he has published his new book My Garden – My Friend, which is a collection of short stories, after the success of his first work with his wife Binglaw, Growing Food in the City.

David has recently been back in Kettering to promote his book to a number of gardening organisations.

He said: “Together with the writers I would encourage readers, no matter where they live, to join us in enjoying these enthusiastic tales, scary adventures, passionate pleas and heartwarming feelings about discoveries made while happily growing their gardens.

“The writers all agree that their gardens really are wonderful friends.

“The book is for children and young adults, parents and grandparents to marvel at, and enjoy the wonders that these young gardeners unearth.

“The multicultural and multinational nature of the students in Hong Kong’s schools and foundations gives a global perspective to the stories and poems.”
