How to Grow More Vegetables*

*Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Imagine

John Jeavons

7th Edition, Revised

Foreword by Alice Waters


A classic in the field of sustainable gardening, How to Grow More Vegetables shows in generous detail how to produce a beautiful organic garden with minimal watering and care, whether its a few tomatoes in a tiny bacyard or enough food to feed a family on less than half an acre.

More than simply a superb organic gardening book, this classic text and reference for food growers is a key part of a grassroots global solution to hunger and enironmental degradation.  Published in seven languages and used in 130 countries, How to Grow Vegetables is based on the work of master horticulturist Alan Chadwick and has been refined over more than 35 years by John Jeavons and the staff and volunteers of Ecology Action.

This significantly revised and expanded edition contains updated gardening charts and the latest techniques developed by Ecology Action, including sustainable growing practices and optimizing soil fertility using the Grow Biointensive® method of sustainable gardening.  It will help you nurture your garden in harmony with nature’s cycles, preserving the earth’s nutrients and enriching its soil — and harvesting the most delicious homegrown produce imaginable.
