QUICK NOTE: This book is for BEGINNERS to gardening (organically). You get all the basics including which tools to use for doing what, terminology, etc. If you are an advanced gardener, there are still things to be gleaned from it.

Have you noticed how much more expensive organic vegetables (and fruits) are in comparison to the sprayed with pesticides and chemical fertilizer ones are? I've seen $2.50 for an organic apple which is utterly ridiculous!

Learning how to start an organic vegetable garden beginning with pure organic seeds, whether indoor or outdoor, is what "Organic Gardening 101 - "How To" Essentials and Tips for Starting an Outdoor or Indoor Organic Vegetable Garden" teaches you to do.

If you are a beginner and don't know much about organic gardening, this book covers the basic "how to" essentials to get you started. Some of what you will learn is how to tell which soil is most conducive for growing vegetation and how to make natural fertilizer to plant your seeds in.

There are a lot of components to organic gardening so being familiar with some common basic terminology provided in this book helps out when you go to your local nursery or garden store. You'll know what you're talking about and exactly what to look for. All of that is covered including what specific gardening tools you'll need to use for your vegetable garden.

Even the planter or container that's used for growing the seeds in (and proper lighting) plays a role in how well it grows. Especially if you are growing an indoor vegetable garden, this would need to be taken into consideration which is discussed in detail.

You'll also learn about miniature organic vegetable gardening that's really fun and easy to grow. It's so nice and convenient to literally pick vegetables and herbs right off your plant without leaving your home.

Helpful tips and resourceful websites that take you deeper into what to do are included to help you create the perfect organic vegetable garden from scratch - indoor or outdoor - depending on your situation. Either way, you'll enjoy your home grown vegetables!

Meet the Author

Stevie is just an ordinary person that's gotten quite fed-up with chemicals in the products we buy, the food we eat, the nonchalant attitude of corporations that continue to exploit the earth's natural resources, the overall toll it has taken and continues to take on our planet and precious eco system; and anything that contributes to ruining our environment.

So she's passionate about bringing awareness in as many ways as possible to how each person can individually do a little something to contribute to a cleaner environment which is beneficial not only to people; but other living things that we share this planet with.

In this [Special Edition Collection] of Sustainable Living - Practical Eco-Friendly Tips for Green Living and Self-Sufficiency in the 21st Century, she attempts to shed light on topics that are not only interesting and educational, but that others might be considering due to health issues, economic situations, or just outright curiosity.

A broad array of alternative eco-friendly methods on green living, self-sufficiency, and how organic products and foods really are better for us and the environment is brought out. Employing some of the things mentioned in this book really can save you money and is healthier for your body, well-being, and the environment. Let's give the landfills, groundwater and finite natural resources a break by educating ourselves and taking action that will make a difference.
