NEW SOCIETY BLOG — Farming
Today’s blog is an Interview with Dan Chiras, author of Chinese Greenhouse: Design and Build a Low Cost, Passive Solar Greenhouse featuring our winning giveaway question.
Like many gardeners, Dan Chiras, author of The Chinese Greenhouse, experiences annual vernal melancholy and strives to extend the growing season. That’s why he began using a very special greenhouse to grow through the dead of winter. Today, Dan explains how the Chinese greenhouse cures his winter gardener's blues.
In his book, Dan Chiras explains how he expanded on his four-season harvest technique by building a Chinese greenhouse to grow not only cold-weather veggies but a variety of warmer-weather ones as well. Today, we explore six ways that differentiate Chinese greenhouses from conventional ones.
In Farm the City, Michael Ableman, takes his experiences building Sole Food Street Farms to create a guide to setting up and running an urban farm. Sole Food Street Farms is one of the largest urban agriculture enterprises in North America.
Today’s excerpt is from the best-selling book The Market Gardener: A successful Grower’s Handbook for Small-Scale Organic Farming by Jean-Martin Fortier.
