Grow twice the fruits and vegetables in half the space on the farm, in the backyard, or in your window! Have you noticed the extraordinary flavors and yields emanating from even a small garden when the soil is just right? If you’ve ever been envious of your neighbor’s dirt or just curious about homesteading, then The Ultimate Guide to Soil is perfect for you. The book begins with a personality test for your soil, then uses that information to plan a course of action for revitalizing poor soil and turning good dirt into great earth. Next, you’ll learn to start and maintain a no-till garden, to balance nutrients with remineralization, and to boost organic matter with easy cover crops. Don’t forget the encyclopedic overview of organic soil amendments at the end. Old standbys like manures and mulches are explained in depth along with less common additions such as bokashi compost and castings from worms and black soldier fly larvae. Learn when hugelkultur, biochar, paper, and cardboard do and don’t match your garden needs, then read about when and how to safely use urine and humanure around edible plantings. With an emphasis on simple techniques suitable for the backyard gardener, The Ultimate Guide to Soil gives you the real dirt on good soil. Maybe next year your neighbor will be envious of you! This ebook includes the complete text of Personality Tests for Your Soil, Small-Scale No-Till Gardening Basics, Balancing Soil Nutrients and Acidity, and Soil Amendments for the Organic Garden.

Feed your garden and your garden will feed you. This final installment in The Ultimate Guide to Soil series walks new and experienced gardeners through using dozens of amendments for fertilizing, mulching, and conditioning the organic garden. Hess starts with traditional materials like compost and cover crops, branches out into permaculture goodies such as biochar and hugelkultur, and comes full-circle with both urban and rural waste products including cardboard and humanure. Based on a decade growing all of her family's vegetables using organic techniques, the author steers readers away from potential hazards like weedy straw and heavy-metal-imbued inks. Then she suggests both quick fixes and slow-but-sure options for integrating found and purchased amendments into troubled ground to create a garden paradise. Don't miss this conclusion to a series that has been described as "Easy, useful, and homestead tested." You'll recoup the cost of this book with your first nutrient-dense bunch of homegrown asparagus and the increased flavors in your existing garden will be icing on the cake.

These aren't your grandpa's composting methods, Composting for a New Generation covers the modern composting techniques, vermicomposting, composting with nature, keyhole gardens, organic composting, and using compost. Environmentalists aren't the only ones to compost anymore! It’s not just about reducing food waste; most composters get their hands dirty because of the benefits it brings to the soil in their garden. All the extra nutrients make for well-fed gardens with plenty of nutrients and rich moisture. Composting has “been under the radar screen until now, and seen as a boutique, West Coast thing,” says Jared Blumenfeld, who oversees California as well as two other Western states and the Pacific for the Environmental Protection Agency. “But now everyone from Massachusetts to Minnesota has programs starting up, and pretty soon there will be a critical mass.” Composting for a New Generation includes tried-and-true composting methods and new, innovative techniques. You’ll learn the science of composting, traditional bin composting (including how-to sections on building your own bin), vermicomposting (with worms), composting with nature, keyhole gardens, organic composting, and using your finished compost. Composting for a New Generation is the most complete book to date for your organic soil needs.

In seinem Buch "Be Love Now" gibt Ram Dass einen einzigartigen Einblick in seinen langen spirituellen Weg. Der heute 80-Jährige lässt uns teilhaben an den wichtigsten Erfahrungen seiner Transformation vom bedeutenden Harvard-Psychologieprofessor zum "Diener Gottes". Die Begegnung mit seinem Guru Neem Karoli Baba, liebevoll Maharaj-ji genannt, führt zu einem Leben in bedingungsloser Liebe - der Essenz des Daseins. "Be love now" ist ein sehr persönliches Buch und gleich zeitig eine wundervolle Entdeckungsreise, die Herz und Geist öffnet. "Stell dir vor, dass dich jemand mehr liebt, als du je zuvor geliebt worden bist. Man liebt dich stärker noch als deine Mutter dich als Kind geliebt hat, mehr als dein Vater dich je liebte, dein Kind oder dein dich liebender Partner. Diese Liebe will nichts von dir, ist nicht auf persönliche Befriedigung aus und will nichts mehr, als dass du völlig erfüllt bist. Du wirst nur für das geliebt, was du bist, deshalb, weil es dich gibt."
