Jean-Martin Fortier: The Market Gardener

The Market Gardener: A Succesful Grower's HAndbook for Small Scale Organic Farming by Jean-Martin Fortier

Inspired by the French intensive tradition of maraichage and by iconic American vegetable grower Eliot Coleman, author and farmer Jean-Martin Fortier shows by example how to start a market garden and make it both very productive and profitable.

With The Market Gardener: A Succesful Grower's HAndbook for Small Scale Organic Farming, Fortier shows that making a living wage farming without big capital outlay or acreage may be closer than you think.
