Originally published in 1989, this is a classic book on small-scale organic growing. Author Eliot Coleman details a form of farming that is beneficial to both home gardeners and market growers.

He provides valuable information divided over 30 chapters with topics including history, land, crop rotation, green manures, soil fertility, pests, livestock and marketing. This third edition also includes updates on new techniques and tools, plus changes to practices that Coleman has developed through years of experimentation.

Further appendices give valuable information on more than two dozen of the most frequently grown types of vegetables (in the USA), the USDA North American Hardiness Zone Map, recommended tools, suppliers and a schematic outline of biological agriculture.

Filled with color photos, diagrams and charts, this comprehensive, easy-to-read guide is an excellent reference for growing organic vegetables.
