Encouraged by Michele DeFilippo’s book Publish Like the Pros, Jon Cunningham decided to self-publish his own nonfiction book, Around My Garden in 80 Years. His book delves into the intricacies of gardening, including explanations on pollination, composting, irrigation, and grafting. A major theme of the book is self-reliance and sustainability. Gardening has long been a fun hobby for Cunningham and his family, and after eighty years working with plants, he decided to share his knowledge with others. When COVID came along, he was forced to stay home, leading to him finally having time to put his passion down on paper. He hopes he can guide others on how to take proper care of their gardens and encourage them to live sustainably. Though his book is featured on Amazon, you can also find it in hardware stores and nurseries.
