Growing Green: Organic Techniques for a Sustainable Future by Jenny Hall and Iain Tolhurst is a guide for those who want to learn about stock-free organic gardening techniques. It is just the thing for absolute beginners or professional growers who want to grow for vegans.

Stock-free organic gardening means you use no animal by-products or manures. The book shows you how to become self-sufficient and have healthy crops with fewer weeds, pest or diseases. Until this book, there has never been a comprehensive guide to give organic growing standards for different scales of vegetable production – from large farms that use tractors or small machinery to small gardeners, who just want to be self-sustaining and use hand tools.

Growing Green is ideal for researchers and students as well, since it is a first-of-its-kind in organic growing. It covers these topics:

  • Tools and machinery needed
  • Managing green manures
  • Making seed compost
  • Rotation for year-round supply
  • Weed, pest, and disease control
  • Selling produce
  • Reducing your ecological footprint

Iaian Tolhurst has been growing stock-free organic since 1994 on 18 acres at Hardwick Estate in south Oxfordshire, England, which has a climate like San Francisco, California, except with 3 inches more rain each year. His is the first farm to ever be awarded the Stockfree-Organic Symbol. This is the highest certification possible for vegan organic farms. Jenny Hall has been growing stock-free organic on five acres near Wigan, England since 2004. The climate there has more rainfall than Oxfordshire, but the same temperature range. 328 pages.
