Growing Green: Animal-Free Organic Techniques, an essential guide to organic growing, is perfect for absolute beginners as well as experienced professionals. It introduces the concept of stockfree-organic and shows, through case studies, that when growers abandon the use of slaughterhouse by-products and manures, they can be rewarded with healthier crops and fewer weeds, pests, and diseases.
In an age where dreams of self-sufficiency seem unattainable, Growing Green shows that making a living by growing organic vegetables can be achieved by anyone who is willing to rent land. Until now there have been no comprehensive guidelines on how to follow organic standards at the different scales of vegetable production using tractors, small machinery, and hand tools.
An invaluable guide for the grower, researcher, and student, this book will prove to be an important step forward for the organic movement.
