One of my goals this year is to grow enough food for my family, including my extended family. The Mittleider Gardening Method seems to be a proven approach, so we’re going to try and prove it for ourselves. The course book seems to be well laid out.

    I have used this method for years with great success i ended up with tones of worms migrating into my grow boxes which to me says it is not as bad as some opponents like to say, nitrogen is nitrogen you give the plants what they NEED and they thrive making saving seeds for next year a breeze, had a disastrous first year with the so called "Back to Eden" the special soil mix cost a damn fortune and the yields were pathetic compared to mittleider method.

    it may take "Years" to build the soil, sounds fine in theory but when it comes down to being able to feed your family if you had to rely on BTE in a crises, i think you would be in trouble. i look at RESULTS, and from my experience, BTE was a bust. if i had to rely on it to feed my family, we would have not survived the winter.

    Mittleider has NEVER failed to provide an amazing abundance giving you enough to eat, preserve and sell or give away. for my time and money it has been a consistent proven winner.

    It's definitely worth experimenting with! I tried variations on this the past two seasons and have found the weekly fertilization to be excessive, although I do indeed like synthetic fertilizers. If you check your university extension, or any university extension, for fertilizing guidelines, I doubt you'll find the suggestion to fertilize weekly. The one exception may be with tomatoes, and perhaps in containers. The course book is great though, and I do refer to it from time to time for other reasons than fertilizing. By using organic matter with synthetic fertilizer, with the suggested amount on the label, I have equaled what I produced with weekly feedings. Just my opinion though!

    As a lower cost alternative to the Mittleider Method, you could get immediate results by using organic fertilizer as you gradually build the soil with compost and mulch from free local resources. You could then taper off the fertilizer as the soil improves and eventually rely only on free compost and mulch.

    Can you please keep a diary on how much you spend on this journey, including the course? How much is this course?
