Grow Biointensive emphasizes a whole-system approach that builds soil fertility in a relatively short time so that fertilizer inputs (other than compost) often become unnecessary, thereby making the garden and farm more self-sustaining. Learn the principles of double-digging, composting and soil-building, intensive planting, companion planting, carbon-farming (compost crops), calorie-farming, and open-pollinated seeds.
