    While this book has alot of wonderful information and accumulated wisdom from Mr Coleman, it is not for beginners If you have little to no experience gardening or farming, and especially if you don t have a place to practice, this book can leave youconfused than enlightened This was one of the first books I read when starting to learn about farming, and while I could tell that there was some great stuff in there especially

    This may not be a fair rating I only read the first chapter and flipped through it The book is probably useful if you re a beginning gardener who wants to start an organic farming venture But all of the parts I read were just rehashing information I d learned elsewhere.

    Reading all the books seemedof necessity before I was growing at the scale I wanted Now that I have my hands in the dirt or playing with waydirt It s interesting to see how that s changed my reading of farming books Now instead of needing to inhale all the information and ideas I tend to find little nuggets of information I need I think this probably represents progress Guess we ll see how 2020 turns out

    If you eat organic vegetables, are in a CSA, or go to a farmer s market, you have Coleman to thank in part While others were part of the organic farming movement in the 60s, Coleman did it well, and he educated himself, and he continues to be an active proponent of true organic gardening not necessarily the stuff labeled that at your supermarket, which may or may not be as safe or chemical free as you d hope He s such a booster for thi

    Despite this book s title, it s not all that useful for the home gardener But since I have a fantasy of someday becoming a market grower, I still found it interesting Coleman really knows his stuff, and while this book is older, I learned a lot I especially appreciated his thoughts on choosing property to grow on, what size works best for market growing hint you don t need tons of acres , and what tools he uses to reduce labor A must for anyon

    An excellent intro on how to set up a small organic farm useful tips on site selection, soil improvement, crop rotation planning, and cover cropping Very readable About half way through right now.

    I found this book to be such a valuable resource Loads of wonderful information although it s much marketed towards the market grower as a home grower I have implemented many of these teachers into my own garden One of my must have books

    This books is probably most useful for the market gardener, as there are long chapters on tools, marketing, and moveable greenhouses which don t apply to most people I know who are working in their backyards To be fair, there are some very large backyards out in the country, but still At one point it seemed like the book was primarily written to inform the world of soil blocking, which I still don t understand, even after reading his chapter on it How on

    I appreciate the history Coleman gives of organic or rather what he calls biological farming It was interesting to hear about the people pioneering or perhaps holding on to these ideas before they became a fad This book gave me a greater respect for organically grown food because it made sense of why it is important.There are a lot of practical explanations for how to grow things in this book It s also chock full of resources There are some terms and practice
