The Intelligent Gardener

by Steve Soloman & Erica Reinheimer

This practical step-by-step guide and the accompanying customizable web-based spreadsheets go beyond organic and are essential tools for any serious gardener who cares about the quality of the produce they grow.

Vegetables, fruits and grains are a major source of vital nutrients, but centuries of intensive agriculture have depleted our soils to historic lows. To grow produce of the highest nutritional quality the essential minerals lacking in our soil must be replaced, but this re-mineralization calls for far more attention to detail than the simple addition of composted manure or NPK fertilizers. The Intelligent Gardener demystifies the process, while simultaneously debunking much of the false and misleading information perpetuated by both the conventional and organic agricultural movements. This practical step-by-step guide and the accompanying customizable web-based spreadsheets go beyond organic and are essential tools for any serious gardener who cares about the quality of the produce they grow. Copyright 2013, softcover, 336 pages.

Phenomenal read. Great insight into the role soil plays on nutrition.

Steve’s book is a must read for anyone looking to further their organic soil knowledge and gain insight into the role each nutrient and mineral plays in the garden. Touching on the history of agriculture, the role soil plays in general nutrition and even including a fool-proof recipe for complete organic soil, ‘The Intelligent Gardener’ is a worthy tool chest for the organic arsenal.
