Based on the author’s practical experience of growing fruit, vegetables and herbs in ways that supercharge their nutritional value, GROW YOURSELF HEALTHY is a practical guide on how to design and manage an edible garden for gut health, providing food for us and the trillions of microbes we host within us. It describes the science behind the subject in an accessible way and shows how to grow an incredible diversity of fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers, even in a small space. The book describes the best types of fruit and vegetable to choose and how to grow them to optimize their health boosting properties. It brings together the latest scientific research into different organic growing, harvesting and processing methods that will empower the reader to take back control of the nutritional value of the food they eat.

GROW YOURSELF HEALTHY also contains 11 practical projects to demonstrate how to grow healthy, fresh produce at home, in a small garden, allotment, balcony, or even on a windowsill. A chapter with 13 fermentation recipes shows how the genius of microbes can be harnessed to transform freshly harvested produce into delicious sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, and fermented drinks. 

The book is lavishly illustrated with beautiful photographs by Marianne Majerus.
