Resumo:

The Prince of Wales has spent the last ten years trying to turn his Highgrove estate in the Cotswolds into a model of environmentally-benign gardening and farming. Highgrove An Experiment in Organic Gardening and Farming, records the successes, failures and lessons to be shared, not only by gardeners, horticulturists and farmers but by everyone interested in the countryside and in the environment at large. In a fascinating introductory section the Prince of Wales spells out what his vision for Highgrove has been and in a concluding chapter considers the ways in which Highgrove might be developed as a blueprint for the future. He writes about his vision for the countryside with infectious enthusiasm and passion.

Charles Clover, the Environment Editor of the Daily Telegraph in London, superbly sketches in the backcloth: the history of the estate, the making of the garden, the wildflower garden, the way wildlife was encouraged, the reasons behind the decision to make the farm organic and the development of markets for organic products. This provocative book is gloriously illustrated throughout with color photographs by the expert garden photographer Andrew Lawson, and by Maurice and Carroll Tibbles who have filmed a television documentary on wildlife at Highgrove.
