The Ultimate Guide to Soil: The Real Dirt on Cultivating Crops, Compost, and a Healthier Home

Anna Hess

$16.99

The book begins with a personality test for your soil, then uses that information to plan a course of action for revitalizing poor soil and turning good dirt into great earth. Next, you'll learn to start and maintain a no-till garden, to balance nutrients with remineralization, and to boost organic matter with easy cover crops. Don't forget the encyclopedic overview of organic soil amendments at the end. Old standbys such as manures and mulches are explained in depth along with less common additions such as bokashi compost and castings from worms and black soldier fly larvae.
