The Maritime Northwest region runs roughly from
Vancouver, B.C to Roseburg, Oregon and from the Cascade foothills to the coast.
Michael Levenston, Executive Director of City Farmer Society in Vancouver,
B.C., said of our Maritime
Northwest Garden Guide, “Seattle Tilth has always led the way for
organic gardeners in the Maritime Northwest. This wonderful guide will inspire
old and new gardeners alike to grow more food throughout the year and take
advantage of our unique climate.”
