Comments

“In the middle of Monument Valley’s desert area, lush vegetation is flourishing. Dr. Jacob Mittleider, an expert on gardening . . has shown that food can be produced in the world’s worst soils.”
(Marsha Keele, Monument Valley, Utah)

“On both sides of the road we saw well laid out green and healthy growing crops. I could hardly believe my eyes as I had known this land to be a sandy waste.”
(B. D. Lakshman, Suva, Fiji Islands)

“Everyone in the Agriculture Department has been amazed at the results obtained. I didn’t think we could do it, but you have shown that it could be done in this country.”
(Bob Ackeroid, Papua, New Guinea)

“Dr. Mittleider has demonstrated that despite extremely unfavorable soil conditions, an abundance of vegetable crops can be produced by using his procedures. And this method has given hope to discouraged farmers throughout the Island.”
(General James p. Lampert, Okinawa, Japan)

“I came prepared to be critical as we are often inundated with programs that are neither practical nor sound. I left completely converted by the simplicity and soundness of the system and results.”
(C. D. Promnitz, Zimbabwe, Africa)

“His method is simple, based on the laws of nature, yet very invaluable and can be applied any time, any place, under any conditions – with sure results.”
