The Soil and Health


Paperback, Kindle, Epub.

A new edition of an important work by Albert Howard, one of the leading figures of the British organics movement.

This is a detailed analysis of the vital role of humus and compost in soil health — and the importance of soil health to the health of crops and the humans who eat them. The author is keenly aware of the dead end which awaits humanity if we insist on growing our food using artificial fertilisers and poisons.

“Agriculture is the fundamental industry of the world and must be allowed to occupy the primary position in the economies of all countries.” – Albert Howard
