About Jeff Lowenfels books:


Smart gardeners know that soil is anything but an inert substance. Healthy soil teems with life—not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. 

Teaming with Bacteria shows how, by working in conjunction with these microorganisms, gardeners of all skill levels can learn to improve their soil and cultivate its complex food web. In Teaming with Microbes, award-winning author Jeff Lowenfels revealed the fascinating facts around the soil food web, all the tiny organisms that live in soil and aid a plants growth. In Teaming with Nutrients, he explored how those organisms aid in the uptake of nutrients. And in Teaming with Fungi, he detailed the symbiotic relationship between plants and fungi—the most important organism living in the soil. 

In his final book, Teaming with Bacteria, Lowenfels digs into the new science behind how endophytic bacteria supply nutrients to a large array of plants and explains, in accessible language, how this information applies to home gardeners, small-scale farmers, and cannabis growers. This conclusion to his Teaming quartet focuses on the cutting-edge science that will help gardeners increase plant health and productivity. A must-have addition to every organic gardener’s library, Teaming with Bacteria leaves gardeners with the knowledge they need to cultivate healthy—and lively—soil for years to come.
