Phil Nauta, the author of the Building Soils Naturally, has been spent his life with plants. He grew up working for his parents in their garden center and later was in charge of maintaining their 9-hole golf course. As an adult, Phil started two businesess which created and sold organic fertilizers; received certificates in Permaculture Design and Sustainable Building and Design; and is a Certified Organic Land Care professional.
Now with the release of his first book, Building Soils Naturally (Innovative Methods for Organic Gardeners), Phil can add “author” to his list of accomplishments. Building Soils Naturally is a gardening book focused on what goes on beneath the surface of our garden soils and how we can use that knowledge to create soil which protects our plants from pests and diseases, create high yields for fruits and vegetables, and produce food which packs more nutrition than supermarket equivalents.
The main thrust of Building Soils Naturally is how to balance your garden and lawn soil. An unbalanced soil, that is, soil which lacks the proper nutritional components in the proper ratios, may cause any number of problems with plants: weak blooms on flowers, insects infesting your fruits and vegetables, and weed infestation to name a few. Phil’s theory is that garden problems are the result of “weak” soil and when soil is balanced, i.e., when it’s healthy and functioning properly, few problems present themselves which can’t be cured (weather issues aside).
