An essential guide to achieving better health by remineralising your soil using natural materials to grow nutrient-dense produce.
Vegetables, fruits and grains are a major source of vital nutrients, but centuries of intensive agriculture have depleted our soils to historic lows.

To grow produce of the highest nutritional quality the essential minerals lacking in our soil must be replaced, but this re-mineralization calls for far more attention to detail than the simple addition of composted manure or NPK fertilizers.

This practical step-by-step guide goes beyond organic and is an essential tool for any serious gardener who cares about the quality of the produce they grow.- Short description
