Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For over 30 years, this pioneering work has continued to revolutionize food production around the world. While many people tend to look for big solutions to global concerns such as malnutrition, environmental researcher John Jeavons proves that the answers are often found in our backyards — that is, in how we grow our food. Written for the individual gardener, "How to Grow More Vegetables" is the bible on Grow Biointensive "RM" mini-farming, a method that produces high yields of food crops in very small spaces while nourishing the soil and reducing the use of chemicals. This newly revised and significantly expanded edition incorporates the latest techniques and methods developed by Jeavons and many others around the world who have adopted this increasingly necessary method of small-scale food production.

Synopsis:

Using bio-intensive gardening techniques, this text shows how to raise enough organic vegetables for a family of four on a parcel of land as small as 800 square feet. It teaches how to produce high yields of food crops in very small spaces while nourishing the soil and reducing chemical usage.

Synopsis:

A classic in the field of sustainable gardening, HOW TO GROW MORE VEGETABLES shows how to produce a beautiful organic garden with minimal watering and care, whether it's just a few tomatoes in a tiny backyard or enough food to feed a family of four on less than half an acre. Updated with the latest biointensive tips and techniques, this is an essential reference for gardeners of all skill levels seeking to grow some or all of their own food.
