In an organic garden, plants in optimum health thrive abundantly, have harvests with amazing taste, and have the ability to fight off plant predators. When they don't, there's often something lacking in their proper nutrition, they are missing beneficial microorganism companions, or they are lacking the energy needed to reach their full nutrient-dense potential. The solution is to "start with the soil." But healthy soil doesn't form simply by composting, fertilizing, or companion planting alone. The solution is in Phil Nauta's 'Building Soils Naturally', where he outlines a practical and holistic approach to gardening by showing how to build soil from nutrients and microbial inoculants. His application creates gardens that are rich in life and produce nutrient-dense food with wonderful flavor.
