Decades before the terms "eco-friendly" and "sustainable growing" entered the vernacular, How to Grow More Vegetables demonstrated that small-scale, high-yield, all-organic gardening methods could yield bountiful crops over multiple growing cycles using minimal resources in a suburban environment. The concept that John Jeavons and the team at Ecology Action launched more than 40 years ago has been embraced by the mainstream and continues to gather momentum. Today, How to Grow More Vegetables , now in its fully revised and updated 8th edition, is the go-to reference for food growers at every level: from home gardeners dedicated to nurturing their backyard edibles in maximum harmony with nature's cycles, to small-scale commercial producers interested in optimizing soil fertility and increasing plant productivity.nbsp;Whether you hope to harvest your first tomatoes next summer or are planning to grow enough to feed your whole family in years to come, How to Grow More Vegetables is your indispensable sustainable garden guide.

This book is about a specific type of gardening "branded" as GROW BIOINTENSIVE. It's essentially a method that uses compost. What I don't like is that they are really pushing the "GROW BIOINTENSIVE" name throughout the book and in all caps, by the way. Annoying at times. If this review gets to you, you may be annoyed by the book.

Someone is definitely interested in getting this method branded.

All that said, however, this is a great book on how to work with compost: how to do it, develop it, methods, etc. It has gardening, too. A large focus is on soil preparation. I took a lot of value out of it.
