After selling out the first edition, the Vegan-Organic Network has now revised and reprinted the highly praised Stockfree Organic handbook Growing Green: Organic Techniques for a Sustainable Future by Jenny Hall and Iain Tolhurst. The book is an essential guide to stockfree-organic growing and is perfect for absolute beginners as well as experienced professionals. It introduces the concept of stockfree-organic food production and shows, through case studies, that when growers abandon the use of slaughterhouse by-products and animal manures they can be rewarded with healthier crops and fewer weeds, pests and diseases.
In an age where dreams of self-sufficiency seem unattainable, Growing Green shows that making a living from growing organic vegetables can be achieved by anyone who is willing to rent land. Until the publication of Growing Green there were no comprehensive guidelines on how to follow the stockfree organic standards at the different scales of vegetable production using tractors, small machinery and hand tools.
Easy to read, beautifully printed on quality recycled paper, with 16 colour photos and many line drawings, at 352 pages this is a substantial publication, one that is now regarded as a benchmark for the future. Published with the help of a grant from the Cyril Corden Trust.
