On Friday, June 29th from 6pm-8pm, at the Cake Shop at 225 Haywood Road in West Asheville, Short Street Cakes will host a book signing and heirloom cocktail party celebrating the release of Robyn Jasko’s new book Homesweet Homegrown: How to Grow, Make, and Store Food, No Matter Where You Live. Newly released by Microcosm Publishing and illustrated by Jennifer Biggs, Homesweet Homegrown is a new 128-page DIY guide that empowers people everywhere to grow their own organic food– whether they live in a high-rise city apartment or an acre in the suburbs. To launch their national book tour, Robyn and Jen created a Kickstarter campaign, and with the help of gardeners and DIYers around the globe, they are embarking on a National Amtrak Book Tour to get the word out about how easy it is to grow your own food. Stops include Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Boulder, Austin, Asheville, Philadelphia and New York. Sponsored by Short Street Cakes, DineIndie.com, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Smoke Signals Baking, Small Measure, and Paper Crane Farm, the Homesweet Homegrown book signing will feature complementary heirloom cocktails, sweet and savory local treats, and a reading and signing by the author. Books will be available for purchase at $9.95.
