WATCH: Eliot Coleman on Organic Farming and Soil Health

Posted on Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010 at 12:48 pm by admin

Eliot Coleman, best-selling author of The New Organic Grower and The Winter Harvest Handbook, tells the story of how his adventure in organic farming began.

In the video, Coleman speaks of how his farming practices focus on the health of the soil, “Which can provide everything we need, in a low work system, by taking advantage of the synergy inherent in all the diverse pieces of the biology at our disposal.”

While Green Revolution practices still continue to produce massive quantities of commodity crops, they do so at the expense of that fragile soil biology. Organic farmers like Eliot Coleman take traditional methods like composting and interplanting to a high level of sophistication, creating healthy, delicious food, and supporting diverse soil ecology along the way.

Check out The Winter Harvest Handbook and The New Organic Grower. Both on sale through the month of June!
