Centuries of agriculture have dramatically depleted our soils causing the nutritional value of fruits, grains and vegetables to decline dramatically, but the process of returning soil to true fertility is widely misunderstood. The Intelligent Gardener is an essential guide to achieving better health for you and your family by remineralizing your soil using natural materials to grow nutrient-dense produce.
