Biographies of 76 vegetables with detailed accounts of how
to grow them, their climate of origin, their transformation
over time, and their nutritional and therapeutic potential


Joel Morrow began writing down his vegetable “biographies”―scribbled in the margins of a planting calendar―when his first garden teacher, Margareta Leuder, “described how as a child she had raised watermelon in the Sonoran desert in 1905.”

In the 1980s, Joel became editor of the journal Biodynamics. In it, he began his interviews with vegetables, which have continued for 30 years. This book is the result of those “biographies.” As he tell us, “Though these biographies are arranged alphabetically for convenience [from Asian Brassicas to Winter Squash], each chapter reflects my own changing point of view, depending on the date of interview. Some begin historically, some morphologically, and some so imaginatively they seem to reawaken Margareta’s childhood shamanism, which became beautifully elaborated through Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual view of nature, the foundation of biodynamics.”

This book is not only a gardening guide; it also guides the reader inwardly to perceive a vegetable as “a work of art, a journey, a rite of passage into the natural world.” Vegetable Gardening for Organic and Biodynamic Growers is destined to become not just a perennially useful guide, but also a favorite bedside book.

About the Author:

Joel Morrow has been gardening professionally since 1974 in California, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. For a decade, he gardened intensively three acres of vegetables, directing mentally disabled adults, and, for the next 30 years, installed hundreds of flower and vegetable gardens. Today, his seven-acre homestead in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, is covered almost entirely with fruit trees, vegetable gardens, pond gardens, hidden gardens, woodland gardens, and flowering borders. In his spare time, he makes watercolor paintings of local plants, insects, and amphibians.
