Samenvatting

With more than 45,000 sold since 1989, The New Organic Grower has become a modern classic. In this newly revised and expanded edition, master grower Eliot Coleman continues to present the simplest and most sustainable ways of growing top-quality organic vegetables. Coleman updates practical information on marketing the harvest, on small-scale equipment, and on farming and gardening for the long-term health of the soil. The new book is thoroughly updated, and includes all-new chapters such as:
  • Farm-Generated Fertility—how to meet your soil-fertility needs from the resources of your own land, even if manure is not available.
  • The Moveable Feast—how to construct home-garden and commercial-scale greenhouses that can be easily moved to benefit plants and avoid insect and disease build-up.
  • The Winter Garden—how to plant, harvest, and sell hardy salad crops all winter long from unheated or minimally heated greenhouses.
  • Pests—how to find "plant-positive" rather than "pest-negative" solutions by growing healthy, naturally resistant plants.
  • The Information Resource—how and where to learn what you need to know to grow delicious organic vegetables, no matter where you live.


Written for the serious gardener or small market farmer, The New Organic Grower proves that, in terms of both efficiency and profitability, smaller can be better.

Recensie(s)

Booklist, Starred Review-- This 30th anniversary edition of a foundational book on small-scale organic growing has been revised and updated to reflect the changes that have happened in those intervening years. Organic food is now mainstream, growing a home food garden is commonplace, and author Coleman has developed new techniques; all of these elements are reflected in the new content which clarifies and expands on the original (1989) and second (1995) editions. While it is written with a small-scale organic farmer in mind, the information included will be highly relevant to home growers as well, especially those starting from scratch and looking to formulate a plan. Starting with a brief agricultural history and moving through virtually every element a small-scale grower would need to consider, this book is an easy-to-read, easy-to- use expert's guide. Appendixes include several paragraphs each on more than two dozen of the most commonly grown (in the U.S.) types of vegetables, the USDA North American Hardiness Zone Map, a schematic outline of biological agriculture, recommended tools and suppliers, and an annotated bibliography. 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 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 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 This is the best book on small-scale farming I've read in years. --Pat Stone, Mother Earth News 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 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 [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 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 One of America's most innovative farmers. --Michael Pollan The incomparable Eliot Coleman . . . serious, meticulous, inspiring. --New York Times
