Growing Green


J. Hall and I. Tolhurst

New Revised and Updated Edition 2015 

Reprinted in 2020

This book is published by VON (Vegan Organic Network) and is an essential reference guide for all private and commercial organic growers, researchers and students. It introduces the concept of stockfree organic and shows, through case studies, that when growers abandon the use of slaughterhouse by-products and manures they can be rewarded with healthier crops, and fewer weeds, pests and diseases. The reader will be taken through each Stockfree Organic Standard step by step and learn how to grow and sell 60 different vegetables with confidence.

Couldn’t better the review from Tim Dean of Northwood Farm so here it is:

“Although Growing Green is written primarily from the perspective of developing a stock-free organic system, this book offers a superb reference guide for all organic growers, researchers and students. Written in a clear, passionate and above all a practical style, the key chapters include soil protection, soil fertility, composting, propagation, rotations, pest and disease control, a focus on growing and storing all key crops, and marketing. If you want to make a real difference producing decent food on your own small but significant portion of the world, this book will tell you most of what you need to know.”
