Weeds are weeds only from our human egotistical point of view because they grow where we do not want them. In nature, however, they play an important and exciting role. Thus begins this classic text written by a pioneer in sustainable agriculture, which wielded a vast knowledge of plant and animal biology through his work with Rudolf Steiner and a lifetime of research.
Despite being written in the 1950s, no other book contains the overview that Dr. Pfeiffer presents here, and the message has lived on as important now as it was over 40 years ago. While somewhat dated and limited, Weeds and What They Tell Us is a classic that belongs on the bookshelf of every student of the soil.
