Item description for Growing Green: Animal-Free Organic Techniques by Jenny Hall & Iain Tolhurst...

Growing Green: Animal-Free Organic Techniques is an essential guide about organic growing and is perfect for absolute beginners as well as experienced professionals. This book 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, less weeds, pests and diseases.
In an age where dreams of self-sufficiency seem unattainable, Growing Green shows that making a living from 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 the organic standards at the different scales of vegetable production using tractors, small machinery and hand tools.
This practical and easy-to-follow guide answers:
  • What tools and machinery will I need?
  • What are the benefits of compost?
  • How do I manage different green manures?
  • Can I make seed compost without slaughterhouse by-products?
  • What rotations should I use for year-round vegetable supply?
  • How do I grow, harvest and store 60 different vegetables?
  • How can I weed without chemicals?
  • How can I reduce pest and diseases?
  • How can I encourage wildlife?
  • Where should I sell my produce?
  • How can I ensure that I am reducing my ecological footprint?
    An invaluable guide for the grower, researcher and student; this book will prove to be an important step forward for the organic movement.

    Reviews - What do customers think about Growing Green: Animal-Free Organic Techniques?

    Especially recommended for college-level agricultural holdings.  Jul 8, 2007
    The foundation of GROWING GREEN: ANIMAL-FREE ORGANIC TECHNIQUES is the concept of stockfree organic growing which includes nothing from animals - and the concurrent idea that when growers abandon the use of manures, chemicals and genetic modifications, only then will they see healthier crops and fewer problems. GROWING GREEN also shows that anyone can make a living growing such organics, providing chapters packed with guidelines on how to follow organic practices at different scales of vegetable production. From assessing and improving soil fertility and understanding composting procedures to rotating crops and considering environment impact, GROWING GREEN is especially recommended for college-level agricultural holdings.
