How to Grow More Vegetables (And Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains and Other Crops) – John Jeavons.

Written for gardeners and farmers of all levels, and suitable for any size plot of land, it teaches how to produce high yields of food crops in very small spaces while nourishing the soil and reducing chemical usage. This revised edition includes charts and incorporates contemporary techniques and methods for small-scale food production. Not Square Foot gardening but another way of getting maximum yileds from small spaces.

Sustainable gardening is an environmental solution for the new millennium and this work helps gardeners contribute to that solution – in their own back garden.
