What People are Saying About This

Robert Rodale

Eliot Coleman's book will help market gardeners establish the vital and profitable link between farm and city during the 1990s. Every small-scale grower and serious gardener should have a copy.

Paul Hawken

I know of no other person...who can produce better result on the land with an economy of effort and means than Eliot. He has transformed gardening from a task, to a craft, and finally to what Stewart Brand would call 'local science'. (Paul Hawken, from the Foreword)
