With food costs on the rise, people are turning to their own backyards for affordable and delicious produce. Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida helps amateur gardeners get closer to their food and save money. It is also an invaluable guide for small farmers who wish to expand their operations in order to participate in farmers markets or CSAs.

Experts Ginny Stibolt and Melissa Contreras provide simple and accessible advice for successful, pesticide-free vegetable gardening in Florida, where soil types vary and mild winters do not clear out all pests. They offer suggestions for opportunities beyond the home garden, advice on what to do with over-abundant harvests, and strategies for developing a community garden. Stibolt and Contreras also address pest management, appropriate bed types, irrigation, seed saving, proper harvesting, and food safety.

Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida arranges plants by family to help growers design their crop rotation schemes and features some unconventional but robust Florida native plants that are suitable to grow alongside traditional vegetables, such as meadow garlic, tomatillos, Seminole pumpkin, spotted horsemint, jicama, and prickly pear.
