A photographic Manual for growing annual vegetables
Extract from Foreword by Peter Cundall
"Joyce Wilkie and Michael Plane are Australian pioneers of organic growing using modern techniques. They do it because they have long recognised the need to grow things, especially food crops, without the use of poisons and harsh, disruptive chemical fertilisers. This makes them idealists, but not the unreal, starry-eyed idealists once so common during the early days of the organic growing movement. Joyce and Michael have learned things the hard way, by practical, down-to-earth experience, experimentation and years of hard work. They have learned how to manage, enrich and work difficult soils in a climate that fluctuates between a bitterly cold winter and a hot, extremely dry summer.
In this remarkable and valuable CD-ROM (EBOOK) they go into great detail, by means of extensive photographs and graphics, to describe their methods of feeding the soil, the tools they use and how they have overcome major obstacles to achieve outstanding success in their large commercial, organic market garden. This is a perfect guide to action to anyone just starting to create their own organic garden, to any of the rapidly increasing community gardeners or to anyone wanting to set up community supported agriculture in most parts of Australia."
