The Veganic Grower’s Handbook is a comprehensive guide that provides the tools, techniques, and insight into food cultivation from seeding to harvest, while wisely considering the totality of Earth’s inhabitants.
The Veganic Grower’s Handbook seeks to give the new, amateur, and professional gardening enthusiast all the tools and techniques to be successful in vegan-organic methods. Mirroring the gardening year, this manual delineates garden planning to seed-starting in the early season, to garden preparation and transplanting when the weather warms. Composting and maintenance of seedlings in the heat of summer are discussed, harvesting and post-harvest handling with the cool mornings prevail. Ideas are brought forth in long-term storage and closing down the gardens when the nights delve deep. In addition, The Veganic Grower’s Handbook includes six comprehensive annexes on crop profiles for over seventy different species of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, as well as plant spacing and yield charts, tools and other resources are included. This comprehensive guide is specifically geared to small-scale gardeners and farmers in North America from urban to rural environments who wish to cultivate mindfully and compassionately.
