Grow Organic in Comics

The bible of modern organic gardening in graphic format. Because a good illustration speaks volumes.

Presentation

Welcome to a more ecologically balanced way of growing! With plenty of humor and lots of precise details, this book shows you how to create and maintain a well-designed, eco-responsible garden.

You’ll learn everything you need to know about compost, plant propagation, and the little creatures and practices that contribute to the well-being of plant and planet alike – practices designed for growing delicious, healthful fruit and vegetables, as well as superb flowers.

Bokashi and biodynamic composting, permaculture, vortex, bioponics, and a host of other terms and techniques appear in vivid, practical detail.

Based on the work of Karel the Gardener, Pic’s illustrations highlight the very essence of gardening: delight. First, the delight of enjoying the book! Then the delight of cultivating, watching things grow, harvesting, and savoring. And finally, the delight of knowing that all of these techniques help protect the planet.

A vast compendium of innovative methods and tried-and-true gardening advice, this effervescent guide is a must for any gardener who wishes to grow in good conscience.
