Ever since "How to Grow More Vegetables" was published over 30 years ago, we've been asked for a video version, and at last, here it is! This self-teaching video proves that a picture is truly worth a thousand words. Filmed at the Ecology Action research garden, this DVD gives an up-close look at what to do, when to do it, and how to do it best.

First of all, this video emphasizes how easy biointensive is to implement. This self-teaching video provides you with an excellent introduction to our Grow Biointensive method in 8 easy sessions.. With this revolutionary organic gardening method you will learn to grow more food in much less space while building truly sustainable soil fertility. Also save money by reducing water, energy and fertilizer!

We also sell this as a collection with the DVD and packets of seeds for most of the crops discussed in it (mostly grains and compost crops); see item number LDV-6672.

A Wonderful Companion to the Book  
on 07/23/13 by Caroline in FL

I just finished watching Grow Biointensive, a Beginners Guide for the first time of what is sure to be many viewings. It’s the perfect companion to the book, especially if you’re a visual learner. They review what John Jeavons covers in his book, Grow Biointensive, but with more detail than I was able to pull out of reading the book alone. I’m going to go back and read the book again as I think many areas will make more sense after watching the video. The video covers 1 Garden Beds & Soil 2 Grow Seedlings in Flats 3 Transplanting Seedlings 4 Composting 5 Harvesting 6 Saving Seeds 7 Choosing Crops 8 Garden Maintenance As I’d already read the book, I have a basic grasp on all of the topics, but like I said earlier, having a visual is a great bonus. I now know why I need to transplant the seedlings instead of just planting a few seeds in a flat. I know how to easily turn a compost pile and it doesn’t have to be done weekly like some “experts” say!. I’ve never seen grains harvested by hand before, and it doesn’t look to awful hard. I need to save seeds from five plants to maintain genetic diversity – okay – one mistake I won’t make again this season. And on and on. This video is definitely worth your time and money.
