Editorial Reviews

Review

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."



“The incomparable Eliot Coleman . . . serious, meticulous, inspiring.”New York Times



“One of America’s most innovative farmers.”―Michael Pollan



“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



“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



“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
