"All good gardeners know healthy plants start with healthy soil. But why? And how? In Teaming with Microbes Lowenfels and Lewis reveal the new research in the most practical and accessible way."
"[This book] is a must read for any gardener looking to create a sustainable, healthy garden without chemicals."
“If you want to get a good understanding of how soils really work, and learn how to really feed your soil (and thus, your plants), there is a great book that explains it all very well, and also explains how to make really good compost and compost tea. It is concise and uses nonscientific terminology. The book isTeaming With Microbes; A Gardener's Guide To The Soil Food Webby Jeff Lowenfels and Wayne Lewis.”
“The information in this book is eye-opening and consistently entertaining.”
“This very well illustrated hardback is a scientific view of many different kinds of soil microbes which include bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, nematodes and many others.”

This is BS. Just add a little ammonium sulfate to your compost pile and see how much the nitrogen and sulfur increase the microbial life.

Anyone interested in the improving the quality of their gardens, lawns, shrubs and trees should read this book.
We take our soils for granted, remember the dust bowls in the 1930's? It was caused by the ignorance of US Government encouraging farming in a prairie grass ecosystem ill equipped to handle the mechanical tilling and drought conditions of this mid-west region.
If you are interested in Organic gardening this is a must read book. The revised edition (2010) includes a new chapter on mycorrhizae, which are fascinating fungi that grow in and around plants.
Learn about mulch, compost, earthworms and other soil organisms, compost and worm teas, soil science, and the soil food web.
This book is a treat for all soil lovers.
