The handbook features information and lessons on planning a garden, soil preparation, water, seeds, plants, insects, harvesting, winter production and food systems. Interspersed in the lessons are stories by the Advisory Council about farming in New Mexico, including using the acequia system, chile harvesting, and the tradition of San Ysidro Day. Photographs of familiar New Mexico landmarks and hand drawings by local New Mexico artists add to the charm of the handbook.
