Summary, etc.:
"Organic is the new 'conventional.' Organic gardening has long been regarded as esoteric and a little 'out there.' Today, however, organic has practically become mainstream. In fact, you could even say that it has become the new 'conventional' way to grow. [This book] begins with the assumption that most of us want to plant and grow our gardens and yards without using chemical fertilizers and herbicides. Organic gardening is simply safer for the environment and for our families, and this complete guide shows you how to do it. From vegetables to shrubs and groundcovers, you will learn effective ways to eliminate chemicals and still maintain vigorous, healthy plants. Written by Mark Highland, whose organic soils are sold everywhere under the brand The Organic Mechanic, this book is a scientifically driven, modern-day dive into the organic methods, products, and practices that will appeal to any home gardener."--Back cover.
