Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Soil is a living organism that loves to cooperate with farmers and gardeners. A green thumb will appear on those who align themselves with its health and requirements. This book discusses:
  • Soil habitat
  • Sustaining soil fertility
  • The soil food-web
  • Nutrient availability and deficiency
After reading this book, readers will not only have a different view on soil, but on weeds as well. Knowing and utilizing the energies and characteristics of weeds, as Gilman teaches, will make for a more productive garden, and less stressful gardening.

Book News Annotation:

Gilman, veteran vegetable grower and policy director for the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA), explains principles of soil fertility and weed management in organic farming in this guide which is part of an eight volume series (available individually and as a set) developed for farmers, homesteaders, and experienced gardeners transitioning to organic methods. Coverage includes soil habitat, sustaining fertility, the soil foodweb, crop nutrient availability and depletion, weed control strategies, ecological weed control, and weeding with machines. This edition is revised and updated from the editions published by the Northeast Organic Farming Association in 2000, 2001, and 2002. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
