“Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It” author at Green Apple Books, May 1

If you’re into D.I.Y. activities, this author event is for you.

This Saturday, author Billee Sharp will appear at Green Apple Books to share her freecycling, budget-savvy, barter-better wisdom that is part of her book, Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It.

From the radical common sense introduction to the practical how-to’s and yummy recipes, Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It is a step-by-step handbook to revolutionizing spending habits and reclaiming quality of life in the process.

Sharp will talk about some of the tips in her book including how to start a community garden and to seed share, ditch the grass and raise organic veggies in the front lawn, eco-clean the house with lemons and lavender, cure minor maladies from the kitchen cabinet, organize a trade-for-what-you-want free flea market, and cook meals for pennies.

The event is free and will take place in the Granny Smith Room at Green Apple Books, 506 Clement Street, at 2pm.

Plus, here’s a recent interview with Billee Sharp on Examiner.com.
