*Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Imagine
8th Edition, Revised
Foreword by Alice Waters
John’s methods are nothing short of miraculous.
– Alice Waters (from the Foreword)
Decades before the terms “eco-friendly” and “sustainable growing” entered the vernacular, How to Grow More Vegetables demonstrated that small-scale, high-yield, all-organic gardening methods could yield bountiful grops over multiple growing cycles using minimal resources in a suburban environment.
The concept that John Jeavons and the team at Ecology Action launched more than 40 years ago has been embraced by the mainstream ad continues to gather momentum. Today, How to Grow More Vegetables, now in its fully revised and updated 8th edition, is the go-to reference for food growers at every level: from home gardeners dedicated to nurturing their backyard edibles in maximum harmony with nature’s cycles, to small-scale commercial producers interested in optimizing soil fertility and increasing plant productivity.
Whether you hope to harvest your first tomatoes next summer or are planning to grow enough to feed your whole family in years to come, How to Grow More Vegetables is your indispensable sustainable garden guide. I have used these methods for as long as this book has been in print, and have never found it wanting for sound advice that yields beautiful harvests. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
