Praise

Praise for How to Grow More Vegetables:

“Possibly the most detailed explanation of the intensive gardening method available.”
New York Times

“John’s methods are nothing short of miraculous.”
—Alice Waters, author, Slow Food crusader, and founder of Chez Panisse

“There are two kinds of vegetable gardeners–those who garden in beds of some kind and for whom this is the ultimate foundation book, a must-read, and an essential reference. Then there are those who don’t garden in beds, for whom it’s still a must-read and an essential reference. The full title…actually understates the contents. The book is about how to grow pretty nearly all your food and your garden’s fertilizer on a modest amount of land.”
—Carol Deppe, author of The Resilient Gardener: Food Production and Self-Reliance in Uncertain Times

“A masterpiece.”
—Alan Chadwick, master horticulturist
