With more than 45,000 sold since 1988, The New Organic Grower has become a modern classic.
In this newly revised and expanded edition, master grower Eliot Coleman continues to present the simplest and most sustainable ways of growing top-quality organic vegetables.
Coleman updates practical information on marketing the harvest, on small-scale equipment, and on farming and gardening for the long-term health of the soil.
The new book is thoroughly updated, and includes all-new chapters such as:
- Farm-Generated Fertility—how to meet your soil-fertility needs from the resources of your own land, even if manure is not available.
- The Moveable Feast—how to construct home-garden and commercial-scale greenhouses that can be easily moved to benefit plants and avoid insect and disease build-up.
- The Winter Garden—how to plant, harvest, and sell hardy salad crops all winter long from unheated or minimally heated greenhouses.
- Pests—how to find "plant-positive" rather than "pest-negative" solutions by growing healthy, naturally resistant plants.
- The Information Resource—how and where to learn what you need to know to grow delicious organic vegetables, no matter where you live.
- Written for the serious gardener or small market farmer, The New Organic Grower proves that, in terms of both efficiency and profitability, smaller can be better.
