Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops How to Grow More Vegetables:
Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops

by John Jeavons
Paperback (1995)
Now in its fifth edition and printed in seven different languages, Jeavon's book is considered a classic in the field (literally) and has brought about a kind of green revolution in food production around the world.    This book is based on Alan Chadwick's biointensive gardening techniques.    It will show you how to raise enough fresh, healthy, organic vegetables for a family of four on a parcel of land as small as 800 square feet!   Nothing could be more fundamental to the needs of an increasingly crowded world than food.
If you have a small, flat rooftop, access to a bit of open space between your house and your neighbor's, or any small patch of land, here's the ultimate how-to manual for making the most of it to raise your own food, including ways to enhance soil fertility and productivity, non-chemical pest controls, where and when to plant what in your climate or location, the tools you'll need, and the problem-solving skills essential to success.    This "ground-breaking" book is used by gardeners around the globe and is as hopeful, inspiring, and motivating a gardening book as has ever been written.    --Mark Hetts
