Eve Balfour’s The Living Soil made an international impact during the Second World War, and inspired the founding of the Soil Association in 1946.

Her skilful synthesis of evidence from other disciplines commanded respect even from opponents, some of whom considered The Living Soil a distinct threat to the new fertilizer industry. It is regarded as one of the great classics of organic literature.

Originally published in 1943, this edition features a foreword by Jonathan Dimbleby and an introduction by Lawrence Woodward OBE, Elm Farm Research Centre.
