Farming and Gardening for Health or Disease
Sir Albert Howard's Farming and Gardening for Health or Disease is based on observation of traditional farming methods in South Asia. Sent from Britain to India as an agriculturist to teach the locals how to farm, Howard quickly discovered that they had much more to teach him. The ideas and holistic farming techniques he articulated inspired the founders of the Soil Association.
