From The Ground Up

Deac Jones


Deac Jones, with decades of knowledge and experience in the field of agriculture, began writing newsletters about biological farming practices in 2016 to help growers and agriculture-related professionals better understand the concepts and practices involved. He focused on inputs and ways to improve and nurture the soil after consulting for large agriculture retailers and realizing there was little understanding about anything other than chemicals and synthetics.

While many books, podcasts, webinars, and trade shows centered on new farming practices and decreasing the use of synthetic inputs, they weren’t enough to create a wholesale change in thinking. By introducing new concepts one at a time via his newsletters, Jones found a way to inspire momentum toward change. Since receiving a tremendous amount of positive feedback, he has continued to write the newsletters and included many of them in this invaluable book.
