About the Author
Frank Newman Turner was one of the founders of the modern environmental movement and published some of the first organic farming and gardening magazines. He founded The Farmer
, the first organic quarterly magazine published and edited from the farm, became a founding council member of the Soil Association, the U.K.'s leading regulator of organic standards, and served as president of an early organic horticultural organization. As a farmer, he received numerous awards in animal breeding and horticulture. A true visionary, many of his agricultural innovations are only now being rediscovered by the new wave of organic farms and graziers.
