The Soul of Soilby Joseph Smillie
Synopses & Reviews
All of us involved in the cultivation of plants — from the backyard gardener to the largest farmer — need to help regenerate a "living soil" for only in the diversity of the soil and its creatures can we ensure the long-term health of ourselves and our environment. The Soul of Soil offers everyone a basic understanding of what soil is and what we can do to improve our own patch of it. Seen in this light, this practical handbook will be an inspiration as well.
