Choosing locally grown organic food is a sustainable living trend thatís taken hold throughout North America. Celebrated farming expert Eliot Coleman helped start this movement with The New Organic Grower published 20 years ago. He continues to lead the way, pushing the limits of the harvest season while working his world-renowned organic farm in Harborside, Maine.

Now, with his long-awaited new book, The Winter Harvest Handbook, anyone can have access to his hard-won experience. Gardeners and farmers can use the innovative, highly successful methods Coleman describes in this comprehensive handbook to raise crops throughout the coldest of winters.

Building on the techniques that hundreds of thousands of farmers and gardeners adopted from The New Organic Grower and Four-Season Harvest, this new book focuses on growing produce of unparalleled freshness and quality in customized unheated or, in some cases, minimally heated, movable plastic greenhouses.

Coleman offers clear, concise details on greenhouse construction and maintenance, planting schedules, crop management, harvesting practices, and even marketing methods in this complete, meticulous, and illustrated guide. Readers have access to all the techniques that have proven to produce higher-quality crops on Colemanís own farm.

His painstaking research and experimentation with more than 30 different crops will be valuable to small farmers, homesteaders, and experienced home gardeners who seek to expand their production seasons.

A passionate advocate for the revival of small-scale sustainable farming, Coleman provides a practical model for supplying fresh, locally grown produce during the winter season, even in climates where conventional wisdom says it ďjust canít be done.Ē

  • More industrial oriented but adaptable to hobbiest

    As I said, oriented more to the commercial end of things, but adaptable for hobby greenhouse. Good to learn techniques used by the commercial organic growers.

  • Good book!

    Great book! It stuck mainly with structures and the science behind why the process works and how it was developed. Very interesting

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? exactly
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? I thought it was going to have more instructions of planting but focuses mainly on timing & protection for crops and goes into little detail otherwise. Still a fantastic book
