Grow Your Soil!

Diane Miessler


Harness the power of the Soil Food Web to create your best garden ever!

Step away from the rototiller, stop digging, sip the fertilizers, and let microbes do the heavy lifting. Discover no-sweat soil-building steps like turning weeds into the on-the-spot mulch, using cover crops and kitchen waste to feed and protect your soil food web, and brewing super-easy, super-charged compost tea to fend off soil pathogens. Then sit back, relax, and watch your garden thrive.

Foreword by Elaine R. Ingram.
