Year-Round Vegetable Production with Eliot Coleman: DVD
This filmed workshop on year-round vegetable production offers farmers and gardeners the rare chance to sit in with Eliot Coleman, one of the pioneers of the organic farming movement and author of The New Organic Grower, Four-Season Harvest, and The Winter Harvest Handbook.
During his careers as commercial market gardener, director of agricultural research projects, developer of tools for organic growers, and teacher and lecturer on organic gardening, Coleman has studied, practiced, and perfected his craft, and while you can bring Coleman’s books with you into your garden, there’s nothing like getting the advice straight from the man himself.
Included in the DVDs:
The history of season-extension farming in Europe
Information on moveable greenhouses and using fabric covers
Growing tips in terms of nutrition and marketability
Curing and packing using sustainable materials
How to work with restaurants and chefs (and create a demand)
Information on tools, soil health, and vegetable varieties that survive well in the cold
Additional photos, diagrams, and climate maps
Experience a workshop with bestselling author and expert in season extension, based on a filmed daylong workshop and extensive interview. Complete with a slide show, images from Coleman’s own farm over the years, his travels to Europe, and detailed plans for his model of season extension, this film is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to sit down with a master.
