These are the basic books for learning

the Biointensive method; the results of our 40 years

of research and experience.

All you need to know to raise your own food and care for your soil sustainably is in these books written by John Jeavons, staff, and apprentices.

All of our booklets are printed on recycled paper.

We carry all the training materials (books, pamphlets, information sheets, and DVDs) for learning the Biointensive and GROW BIOINTENSIVE methods, including some in a number of languages (Spanish, French, Russian and Arabic).
