A local Blue Mountains mum has written a new chapter book series to teach children about gardening and earth care.

Author Sharon Baldwin is publishing a new book every month in 2021 in this new early chapter book series titled “The Gardeneers.” Each of the 12 books focuses on a different principle of permaculture and we see how it applies both in the garden and within the group of friends at the centre of the books.

Launch Party details:

Saturday 5 June from 4pm – 6pm at Lyttleton Stores in Lawson Celebrating the release of the first 6 books with FREE children’s activities, Q&A with Author Sharon Baldwin and Illustrator Tia Madden, books for sale and a sneak peak of new book artwork.

Sharon Baldwin is a local mum of two based in Lawson. This is her first book series and she launched her own independent publishing imprint Loose Parts Press in order to publish these books. She also teaches children’s workshops. Illustrator Tia Madden is also a mountains local – a university student from Blaxland.

25% of all profits from all “Gardeneers” book sales are donated to The Indigenous Literacy Fund.
