Description


Whether you're an experienced gardener, homesteader, or market farmer, this A-Z, soil-to-table guide shows you how to reduce chemical inputs; naturally enrich your growing ecology; and create a hardy, nutrient-dense, and delicious crop.

There are few gardeners (or farmers) I know who wouldn't benefit from reading Sally Morgan's new book. . . . The Healthy Vegetable Garden is a detailed and indispensable resource.--Hobby Farms

In The Healthy Vegetable Garden, expert organic gardener Sally Morgan explains how to use natural approaches to cope with the challenges of a changing climate through principles from regenerative gardening, agroecology, and permaculture--all to help your green space thrive.

The Healthy Vegetable Garden shows you how to:

  • Combat disease and keep pests at bay with natural predators, companion planting, and trap and barrier crops
  • Choose the right plants to attract pollinators and pest predators
  • Build a healthy soil full of organic matter, earthworms, and mycorrhizal fungi
  • Regenerate soil through no-dig practices, composting, cover crops, and mulching
  • Boost biodiversity through the use of crop rotations and polyculture
  • Rewild your garden by creating a range of habitats, making use of walls and fences, log piles, water features, and wild corners
  • Understand plant defenses and use biocontrols
  • Make natural barriers, traps, and lures

A healthy, productive garden should work in harmony with nature to produce and protect delicious fruits and vegetables and build a rich soil that is full of life. With The Healthy Vegetable Garden, growers of all levels will start reducing incidents of pests and diseases while creating a verdant habitat--all without the need for fertilizers, pesticides, or weedkillers.
