Congratulations to Niki Jabbour, recipient of the 2019 American Horticultural Society Book Award for Niki Jabbour’s Veggie Garden Remix! Here’s what the award committee had to say:

Praised for its inviting presentation, beautiful photography, and fresh approach to vegetable gardening, this book will “inspire anyone to experiment and to have some fun with off-the-wall but rewarding veggies,” says Jenks Farmer. Deb Wiley notes it is “written in an engaging first-person voice, as if Jabbour is actually sitting at your elbow, encouraging you to grow something new and showing you, through excellent color photographs, what you’ll get.”

The 2019 Book Award Committee was chaired by Mary Ann Newcomer, a garden communicator based in Boise, Idaho. Other members were: William Aldrich, past president and Fellow of GardenComm in Springfield, Missouri; Catriona Tudor Erler, a garden writer and book author based in Charlottesville, Virginia; Augustus “Jenks” Farmer, garden book author and plantsman based in the Columbia, South Carolina, area; Nancy Rose, horticulturist and recently retired editor of Arnoldia, published by the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts; Brian Thompson, manager and curator of the Elisabeth C. Miller Library at the University of Washington Botanic Gardens in Seattle; and Deb Wiley, garden writer, editor, book project manager, and Fellow of GardenComm in Des Moines, Iowa.
