About the Author

Dr Wilfred Edward Shewell-Cooper was a British organic gardener and pioneer of 'no dig' gardening. He was a prolific author of gardening books and wrote the LAND GIRL MANUAL in 1940. His other books include GROW YOUR OWN FOOD SUPPLY (1939). He was horticultural advisor to the Army and organised the growing of vegetables on every scrap of Army land. This included small pockets of land around anti-aircraft guns, radar stations and in turn training soldiers tend the crops as part of the 'Dig for Victory' campaign. He died in 1982.
