Perrine and Charles Hervé-Gruyer designed a farm in Normandy that is so productive it provides a living for five people whilst only cultivating just a small percentage of the land, leaving the rest for Nature. In Volume 1 of Living with the Earth they described the overarching principles and influences of ecology and permaculture and share how they work with Nature to create highly productive systems. 

In Volume 2, they dive deep into the detail in a comprehensive manual of growing fruit and vegetables on a small farm and market garden scale. Subjects include:

* growing methods
* soil preparation
* plant densities and crop associations
* irrigation and harvesting
* growing year-round
* vegetables, micro greens, tree crops and forest gardens

Beautifully designed and full of useful, descriptive photographs, diagrams and charts throughout plus a wealth of research and practical experience, these volumes are ground-breaking with principles and practices that can be used on any scale. They are, however, of particular interest to small to medium scale farmers, horticulturists, agronomists and market gardeners.
