Publisher Comments:

Those who have loved and used Eliot Coleman's original The New Organic Grower will be glad for the opportunity to revisit the master to learn of his latest thinking on every aspect of organic gardening. Those who are newly acquainted with Coleman will find this revised, expanded edition an incomparable source of inspiration, good sense, and practical advice that includes a fully revised chapter on organic pest management, more than sixty new illustrations, an updated, comprehensive, annotated bibliography listing indispensable sources for serious growers, and an appendix of updated tools and supplies.
