GROWING GREEN: ANIMAL-FREE ORGANIC TECHNIQUES by Jenny Hall and Iain Tolhurst -- 20% OFF THE RETAIL PRICE OF $35!

Easily one of the most important vegan book releases of this decade, Growing Green: Animal-Free Organic Techniques is an essential guide to organic growing and is perfect for absolute beginners as well as experienced professionals. This book introduces the concept of stockfree-organic and shows, through case studies, that when growers abandon the use of slaughterhouse by-products and manures they can be rewarded with healthier crops, less weeds, pests and diseases.

Until now there have been no comprehensive guidelines on how to follow the organic standards at the different scales of vegetable production, from using tractors, to small machinery, to hand tools. This practical and easy-to-follow guide answers:

--What tools and machinery will I need?
--What are the benefits of compost?
--How do I manage different green manures?
--Can I make seed compost without slaughterhouse by-products?
--What rotations should I use for year-round vegetable supply?
--How do I grow, harvest and store 60 different vegetables?
--How can I weed without chemicals?
--How can I reduce pest and diseases?
--How can I encourage wildlife?
--Where should I sell my produce?
--How can I ensure that I am reducing my ecological footprint?

An invaluable guide for the grower, researcher, and student, this book will prove to be an important step forward for the organic movement. (paperback, 328 pages.)
