Are you ready to gain a deeper understanding of your garden?

It seems natural to focus on the biggest inhabitants of the garden and to think that gardening is all about plants. But it is so much more. The lives of plants are interwoven with the lives and activities of all the organisms in their environment.

With this book I hope to show you a glimpse of the many relationships and natural processes within nature, the interconnectedness of life. Gardening is much easier and much more interesting when we work to support the health of the whole garden, and that's what organic gardening is all about.

I hope that this book will help you gain a deeper understanding of your role as a gardener. More importantly, I hope this book will inspire you to do things differently.

Enjoy!
