The Transition Document: Toward a Biologically Resilient Agriculture
By Harry MacCormack. 4th edition, 2009. Paperback. 200 pages.
This is the most comprehensive book we have found about the big picture issues of organic agriculture. It contains in-depth scientific and experiential information about soils and soil biology, chemicals, field practices, compost and compost tea, and the end goal – healthful food from healthy soils for healthy people. Written in an accessible style by one of the original leaders of the organic movement and a founder of Oregon Tilth, The Transition Document is a must-read for anyone interested in organic agriculture.
