We promote open raised bed vegetable gardening. This is the book that showed us and thousands of others the way to get started.
By John Jeavons
A classic in the field of sustainable gardening, HOW TO GROW MORE VEGETABLES (and Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops) Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Imagineshows how to produce a beautiful organic garden with minimal watering and care, whether it's just a few tomatoes in a tiny backyard or enough food to feed a family of four on less than half an acre. Updated with the latest biointensive tips and techniques, this is an essential reference for gardeners of all skill levels seeking to grow some or all of their own food. This is the book that taught Noel and Geoff about raised bed gardening.
“ I grow a lot of onions and carrots, which need constant weeding when they are young. My CobraHead is always the tool of choice because its sharp edges shave down weeds so efficiently. My garden is big and busy, but I have never lost a CobraHead because the curved neck can be hung on anything – a post, fence or even a tomato cage. I have a long-handled CobraHead, too, which I use in the garden for weeding and making shallow furrows. Confession: It makes a darn fine scraper in the chicken house, too. “
Barbara Pleasant, award-winning book author and contributing editor to Mother Earth News
“ I’ve found CobraHead to be one of the most durable tools out in the landscape. Used for a wide range of purposes, our volunteers also find CobraHead to be the preferred tool of choice. The longevity of this well-constructed tool will be measured in decades and beyond which is not typical anymore! “
Mark Dwyer, Director of Horticulture at Rotary Botanical Gardens (Janesville, WI).
“ I love my CobraHead because it is easy as 1-2-3 to get in between flagstones in order to easily pop out weeds!. “
