"For years, we've thought of the 'food chains' in our environment. Lowenfels and Lewis explain an even more wonderful idea: the 'soil food web.' Read Teaming with Microbes and keep it or give it to the library so others may learn of this astounding way to grow vegetables, trees, lawns."
"[This book] is a must read for any gardener looking to create a sustainable, healthy garden without chemicals."
“If you want to get a good understanding of how soils really work, and learn how to really feed your soil (and thus, your plants), there is a great book that explains it all very well, and also explains how to make really good compost and compost tea. It is concise and uses nonscientific terminology. The book is Teaming With Microbes; A Gardener's Guide To The Soil Food Web by Jeff Lowenfels and Wayne Lewis.”
“The information in this book is eye-opening and consistently entertaining.”
“This very well illustrated hardback is a scientific view of many different kinds of soil microbes which include bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, nematodes and many others.”
Jeff Lowenfels is a weekly columnist for the Anchorage Daily News. He is the founder of Plant a Row for The Hungry, a program that has created over 14 million meals to feed the hungry. A popular national garden writer and leading proponent of gardening using the concepts of the soil food web, Jeff is the former president of the Garden Writers of America and was made a GWA Fellow in 1999. In 2005, he was inducted into the GWA Hall of Fame. He lives in Anchorage, Alaska.
I highly recommend this book to any all type of gardeners or even just if you are interested in soil and its importance on our planet.Published 16 days ago by Nicholas

I have always lived with the belief that if it came out of the ground put it back. When the village chipper is around I get the chips the same with the leaf vac when it is around. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dennis L. Lepard
