If last year's vegetable garden left something to be desired, John Jeavons's How to Grow More Vegetables is the book for you. This thorough and accessible overview of the Grow Biointensive gardening method will show you how to get the most out of your garden (on average, four times the yield of a conventionally tended plot), while preserving and enriching the earth's nutrients, and nourishing the soil for future crops.  The best part?  The sustainable gardening techniques Jeavons outlines require less water, less fertilizer, and less work(!) than conventional methods. [Editor's note: This review was written for the 7th Edition.]

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:

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.

About the Author

JOHN JEAVONS is a cofounder of the group Ecology Action and the father of the modern biointensive gardening movement. He lives in Willits, California, where he has been growing more vegetables for decades.

I give this book the highest recommendation. I created a 2 acre organic farm out of the jungles of Costa Rica with hardly more than some seeds, a couple strong campesinos, and this book. It tells you everything from crop rotations to expected yields, companion and antagonistic plantings, and much more. It really is just about all that you will need. Easy to understand, fun to read, you will love it!
