PASSIVE Gardening

Deluxe Edition

Do you wonder exactly what all the hype is about tillage over no-till? Still looking for a no-dig garden that works for many – not just the first -year? Does low work meet with improved yield at some point?

PASSIVE stands for Permanent Agriculture Systems Sustaining Intensive Vegetable Ecology. After explaining in detail how tillage works, it explains how the system so many civilizations have used for millenia can be improved through permanent, specialized systems of mulch making plants.

Passive gardening is like passive solar, where a permanent system is created that harnesses active resources in an ecology. A PASSIVE garden will not only harness the maximum benefit of sun, like a passive solar house; it will harness the air. See this article for a talk I gave a while back that explains why air is the most important element of soil, plants, and the food we harvest.

PASSIVE Gardening also explores what kind of designs can improve the efficiency of permanent, no-till garden systems to give the most passive, high production, self regenerating vegetable gardens possible.

This enhanced, deluxe edition is only available as an ebook, here, through Mortal Tree. The first edition is still available on Amazon -in print, and Kindle.

Your copy of the ebook will be manually licensed and emailed to you, so please allow up to 48 hours for delivery.

 

 

PASSIVE Gardening -Deluxe Edition .PDF format

PDF format best preserves the layout of the book, so images appear next to the right text, and font is preserved. but this means the pages, and size of the words, won’t reconfigure for the size of your screen. On a small screen, the pages are really small. For tablets, down to even large smartphones, this shouldn’t be a problem. I recommend you get this format if at all possible.

PASSIVE Gardening -Deluxe Edition .Epub format

Epub is one of the most widely used formats for ebooks almost any device can read. It also reformats texts to fit small screens. Often the font your device displays won’t be what I wrote the book in, and pictures will show up in various places to suit the size of screen rather than appearing text that refers to the picture. Consider getting the .PDF format if possible.

Mastering the Growing Edge

The growing edge is the surface of the soil. Plants are our most powerful tools for managing this vital frontier as cover crops, smother crops, and perennial ground covers.

MtGE presents ten ‘models’ of ground covers to improve the Chaos Ratio of annual gardens, perennial vegetable beds, and food forests.
