Description

"Brimming with ingenuity, hope, and eminently practical advice, The Winter Harvest Handbook is an indispensable contribution."—Michael Pollan

"Useful, practical, sensible, and enlightening information for the home gardener."—Martha Stewart

With The Winter Harvest Handbook, everyone can have access to organic farming pioneer Elliot Coleman's hard-won experience. Gardeners and farmers can use the innovative, highly successful methods Coleman describes in this comprehensive handbook to raise crops throughout the coldest of winters.

Building on the techniques that hundreds of thousands of farmers and gardeners adopted from Coleman's The New Organic Grower and Four-Season Harvest, this book focuses on growing produce of unparalleled freshness and quality in customized unheated or, in some cases, minimally heated, movable plastic greenhouses.

Inside, you'll find Coleman's clear, concise, and meticulous details [including many accompanying illustrations] on:

  • Greenhouse construction and maintenance

  • Planting schedules

  • Crop management

  • Harvesting practices

  • Marketing methods
  • Coleman's painstaking research and experimentation with more than 30 different crops will be valuable to small farmers, homesteaders, and experienced home gardeners who seek to expand their production seasons.

    A passionate advocate for the revival of small-scale sustainable farming, Coleman provides a practical model for supplying fresh, locally grown produce during the winter season, even in climates where conventional wisdom says it "just can't be done."

    "The incomparable Eliot Coleman is back."—The New York Times

    "A Renaissance man for a new generation."—Dan Barber
