NOTE ON pH: A mistake reversed information on pH in the first printing of "Teaming With Microbes. Corrected to reflect, hydrogen ions lower pH, not raise it in subsequent printings, the first printing seems to be a template for newer printings and Audio recordings!!!. Aghhh. Timber and Jeff are trying to rectify this error. More hydrogen ions lowers pH making things acidic! TRANSLATIONS AVAILABLE: Jeff's knack for reducing complicated science to understandable English hopefully translates because most of these books are available in a host of other languages from Korean, Spanish and French to Dutch,German, Turkish, Romanian and a few others. Do check. 1: Bio for Jeff Lowenfels Jeff Lowenfels is author of the acclaimed quadrilogy known as The Teaming Series" (specifically: "Teaming with Microbes, The Organic Gardener's Guide to the Soil Food Web", "Teaming with Nutrients, The Organic Gardener's Guide to Optimizing Plant Nutrition", "Teaming with Fungi, The Organic Growers Guide to Mycorrhizae" and "Teaming With Bacteria, The Organic Gardener's Guide to Endophytic Bacteria and The Rhizophagy Cycle."

Really, that is a word for four books as is tretralogy. Quadrilogy has a better ring to it, but go ahead, read all 4 no matter what you want to call the series. Jeff is the Cal Ripken of North American Garden columnists. His weekly column has run in the Anchorage Daily News for over 36 years, never missing a single week even for vacations. One of the most humorous and entertaining lecturers on the circuit, Jeff is also a lawyer and the combination of garden writing and law have earned him the moniker of "America's Dirtiest Lawyer." Jeff grew up as an indentured servant on his parent's hobby farm in Scarsdale, New York. There he was forced to plant, weed, mow, pick fruits, flowers and vegetables on 8 acres replete with acre vegetable gardens, a Versailles style formal flower garden, a 100 tree fruit orchard and enough rhubarb to have to have it every day, all year long until he went to college. One day back in the early 70's, he was held up and shot in Boston. As a result he ran as far away as he could go without a passport and ended up in Anchorage, Alaska where he has practiced law and been able to translate his work-filled childhood into a meaningful and enjoyable hobby. Jeff hosted one of Alaska public televisions most popular shows "Alaska Gardens with Jeff Lowenfels." The show was so popular, at one point it ran four times a week and played in Barrow. He is host of a weekly, two hour call in radio show.. Jeff is an extremely respected and popular national garden writer. He is the former president of the Garden Writers of America, was made a GWA Fellow in 1999 and was inducted into the GWA Hall of Fame, the highest honor a garden writer can achieve, in 2005. Most important, Jeff is the founder of a now national program that started as "Plant a Row for Bean's," the soup kitchen in Anchorage, and is now "Plant A Row for The Hungry." The program is active in 48 states and resulted in over a million pounds of produce being donated to feed the hungry every year.
