Introduction

I have written this book in response to a need by even the least experienced gardeners for a simply written organic gardening manual for sub-tropical and tropical climates. Many of my students have pestered me for years about helping them by writing such a book.

1 have outlined clear information and instructions on all aspects of growing fruit, vegetables, herbs, and other plants organically, adding my own tips and helpful hints.

As a keen gardener for over 25 years, and having grown my vegetables and fruits organically since 1984, I have come to the following conclusions.

The laws of Nature affect all living things in exactly the same way. In the wild, where animals live close to Nature, a natural selection takes place. Predators attack and kill weak or sick animals, leaving the strong and healthy to reproduce the species.

Human beings, if stressed or unhealthy, are attacked by bacteria and viruses causing disease and sometimes death.

Unhealthy or weak plants are attacked by insects or disease, destroying them, and leaving only the strong and healthy to reproduce.

It is up to us—to each individual—to live as closely as possible to Nature. In this way we can ensure that our beautiful and unique planet Earth will remain a balanced and healthy place to live, for the generations of humanity which will follow us.
