Happy holidays everyone!

Does anyone know of reputable books on organic farming/gardening? Although, i've searched on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc... and found many well received books, i'm lost and having a hard time choosing from all the options. Thanks!

Daniel, I finally ordered gaia's garden and was pleased when it arrived last week. My sister was even more pleased to receive it as a gift.

I recently finished reading Maria Rodale's Organic Manifesto. While she does not get into the "how to" she makes a fabulous case for the consumer on why to buy organic and for me as a grower to stay organic. I do not agree with all of her politics (dependency on the government) but reading it with an open mind, I loved alot of what she had to say. I am currently reading Harmony by Charels...The Prince of Wales and this book too is beyond fabulous so far.
