Reviews

"A wide-ranging study of the principles and use of compost teas. From soil and plant ecology to bioremediation, pest control and plant defence, topics are covered from scientific, observational and even metaphysical perspectives. It will open your eyes to the possibilities!"--Angie Polkey, permaculture and nature conservation teacher and advisor

"Eric's book is both systemic and timely, as evidence of the loss of soil fertility is building and our appreciation of the systemic nature of global ecosystems has never been more apparent as a source of future sustainability. His approach demonstrates that there are many elements affecting soil health and fertility, from insect pests and predators, to the range of nutrients found in the soil and all plants - including the so-called weeds! Other books on plant and vegetable growing skip over the ways in which these latter plants can be harnessed, through a variety of compost teas, to improve the life-giving quality of soil. This book should be an important addition to every gardener's working collection."--Dr Wendy Gregory, chair of a community garden in Kingston-upon-Hull

"This book is a dual gem: full of practical applications for organic growers seeking to develop their skills with compost teas, whilst at the same time, scientifically grounded so that it offers a broader perspective looking to shape a better approach to human food production without synthetic chemicals."--Dr Colin Trier, Environmental Scientist and cider producer
