The black revolution from the rainforest), by Ute Scheub.
Terra Preta do Indio is the Portuguese name for a substance that is said to have miraculous properties. The press have had a field day with reports on "black gold", while academics believe that the black earth from the rainforest can help solve two of humanity's biggest problems - climate change and hunger. The great thing about it is that anyone can help. Because its main components are kitchen and garden waste, Terra Preta can be produced on any balcony or in any small garden.
The three authors - Scheub, Pieplow and Schmidt - have brought together their knowledge of the world's most fertile earth to create this expert guide. As well as sound instructions for producing Terra Preta and biochar, the guide contains information about the basic principles of climate farming and the recycling economy. A book that argues against artificial fertilisers and GM, and an indispensable source of advice for anyone who is keen on healthy food. 208 pages
