A simpler, fresher look at the organic approach in the whole garden—not just fruit and vegetables but also herbs, flowers, shrubs,trees, as well as composting and recycling, attracting beneficial wildlife and preventing and managing pests and diseases—all organically, and all without the use of chemicals. This book is aimed more at the beginner than the original Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening (published with Rodale in 2001, so it is simpler and more concise.)
