Product description

Review

"The incomparable Eliot Coleman . . . serious, meticulous, inspiring."--New York Times



"Eliot Coleman's book will help market gardeners establish the vital and profitable link between farm and city. Every small-scale grower and serious gardener should have a copy."--Robert Rodale



"[Coleman] writes not just about gardening but about everything that connects to good food and pleasure; a Renaissance man for a new generation."--Dan Barber, chef, Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns



"Anybody seriously tempted to try . . . raising healthful food on healthy land . . . must first read The New Organic Grower. Coleman, who has been a quiet leader in the American organic movement for several decades, presents a balanced, logical exposition of his subject."--Horticulture



"Every page is imbued with the wisdom and careful observations [Coleman] and his associates have gathered; from soil structure to 'mobile greenhouses' . . . each method is thought through to its ultimate impact on the earth and on economic survival."--Library Journal



"This is the best book on small-scale farming I've read in years."--Pat Stone, Mother Earth News



"From first sentence to last, [The New Organic Grower] is a delight--an earnest guide written with an impish sense of humor. It will refresh anyone who wants to get the most from a vegetable garden yet doesn't want to devote too much time and energy to the process."--Publishers Weekly



"Coleman conveys a vast amount of detailed information without ever insulting the intelligence of the reader. He speaks as if to a fellow home or market gardener, sharing what works for him and discussing what he knows and what he doesn't know. The New Organic Grower will be the book you dog-ear and feather with yellow sticky pages, returning to it time and again."--San Francisco Chronicle



"One of America's most innovative farmers."--Michael Pollan



"I know of no other person . . . who can produce better results on the land with an economy of effort and means than Eliot. He has transformed gardening from a task, to a craft, and finally to what Stewart Brand would call 'local science.'"--Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest; editor of Drawdown
