a potentially invaluable reference book for anyone with an un-heated greenhouse in their back garden, all the way to someone considering a commercial scale operation Review by Tm Green, review in Permaculture magazine
Review
Over recent years my shelves have begun to strain under the weight of an eclectic assortment of books concerned with sustainable food production. They range from academic treatises and philosophical musings through to popular science and all the way to veg growing ‘manuals’ that fulfill my nerdish desire for facts, figures and the knowledge of others. The Winter Harvest Handbook is a rarity; it is all of the above.

For those of us not blessed with a tropical growing season, the problem of producing fresh food in the winter months without huge energy inputs is a real concern and Eliot Coleman goes a very long way in this book to providing the solutions. These aren’t merely theoretical but genuinely practicable, tried and tested. The author has a string of accolades and qualifications to his name but the only thing you really need to know is that he is making a decent living by doing exactly what he describes in the book. As well as being a pretty good read, the level of detail described makes this a potentially invaluable reference book for anyone with an un-heated greenhouse in their back garden, all the way to someone considering a commercial scale operation.
