Cassie Liversidge is a fine artist and mom of two young boys as well as an avid gardener and cook. She has been developing an "Edible Playground" at her son's school in East London, and the idea for this book grew out of that. Cassie was lucky to be raised in the country, where her parents owned a plant nursery, so growing is something she once took for granted and now loves to share with adults and children alike. She is the author of Pasta Sauce!: Grow Your Own Ingredients (Sky Pony Press). She and her family live in London, England.
