With more than 45,000 sold since 1989, The New Organic Grower has become a mod­ern clas­sic. In this revised and expand­ed edi­tion (1995), mas­ter grow­er Eliot Coleman con­tin­ues to present the sim­plest and most sus­tain­able ways of grow­ing top-qual­i­ty organ­ic veg­eta­bles. Coleman updates prac­ti­cal infor­ma­tion on mar­ket­ing the har­vest, on small-scale equip­ment, and on farm­ing and gar­den­ing for the long-term health of the soil. The new book is thor­ough­ly updat­ed, and includes all-new chap­ters such as:

  • Farm-Generated Fertility―how to meet your soil-fer­til­i­ty needs from the resources of your own land, even if manure is not available.
  • The Moveable Feast―how to con­struct home-gar­den and com­mer­cial-scale green­hous­es that can be eas­i­ly moved to ben­e­fit plants and avoid insect and dis­ease build-up.
  • The Winter Garden―how to plant, har­vest, and sell hardy sal­ad crops all win­ter long from unheat­ed or min­i­mal­ly heat­ed greenhouses.
  • Pests―how to find plant-pos­i­tive” rather than pest-neg­a­tive” solu­tions by grow­ing healthy, nat­u­ral­ly-resis­tant plants.
  • The Information Resource―how and where to learn what you need to know to grow deli­cious organ­ic veg­eta­bles, no mat­ter where you live.

Written for the seri­ous gar­den­er or small mar­ket farmer, The New Organic Grower proves that, in terms of both effi­cien­cy and prof­itabil­i­ty, small­er can be better.
