Cover of Coffee Book


Nebiyu Assefa and Joanna Brown

Coffee is a book of art that is firmly rooted in Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee. It was inspired by Joanna's visits to Ethiopia where she met the painter, Nebiyu Assefa, and visited Fairtrade Coffee Cooperatives in the mountains of Oromia. The book is the story of the collaboration between Nebiyu and Joanna. It contains a collection of their paintings, sketches, photographs and extracts from their correspondence, and touches on issues of poverty and justice, Fairtrade, co-operatives and Ethiopian culture.

Creating a Forest Garden

Creating a Forest Garden

Martin Crawford

Fifty of Joanna's photographs feature in Martin Crawford's highly respected book. Forest Gardening is "a novel way of growing edible crops – with nature doing most of the work for you. A forest garden is modelled on young natural woodland, with a wide range of crops grown in different vertical layers. Unlike in a conventional garden, there is little need for digging, weeding or pest control. Species are carefully chosen for their beneficial effects on each other, creating a healthy system that maintains its own fertility."
