Organic Soil-Fertility and Weed Management

By Steve Gilman
Illustrated by Jocelyn Langer

Soil is a living organism that loves to cooperate with farmers and gardeners. A green thumb will appear on those who align themselves with its health and requirements. This book discusses:

  • Soil habitat
  • Sustaining soil fertility
  • The soil food-web
  • Nutrient availability and deficiency

After reading this book, readers will not only have a different view on soil, but on weeds as well. Knowing and utilizing the energies and characteristics of weeds, as Gilman teaches, will make for a more productive garden, and less stressful gardening.
