Author Biography

Robert Milne grew all the vegetables and most of the fruit for his family of two, then three, and for ten years, four people. Robert explored the most efficient way of doing everything, modifying some tools and developing some new techniques. In 2003, frustrated by the lack of information about soil in gardening books, Robert took a degree in soil science at the University of Reading. Robert has also worked with vegetable growers in Norway, Scotland and Iceland. In 2002-3, he worked with children in primary schools making and managing quite large vegetable gardens.
