The New Organic Grower

A Master’s Manual of Tools and Techniques for the Home and Market Gardener

Overview

From the publisher

Originally published in 1989, The New Organic Grower is a modern gardening classic. In 1995’s 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 book includes chapters on such new topics 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

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.
