This book not only gives a facinating overview of the improvements that Prince Charles has made to the gardens and farm at Highgrove,but also shows how much can be done to help the environment by using organic gardening and farming methods. Definately a book I didn't want to put down.

A prince's view / A prince's influence 2 Jan. 2004
By Andrea - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well said Your Royal Highness.This book is not only about Highgrove,the Prince of Wales' estate.But what it is really about is the transition from conventional into organic gardening and farming.Prince Charles has a lot of influence and connections to sources that can only help this planet to start healing.A lot of industrial methods of farming techniques took so much out of the soil,poisoning it with chemicals,and now it is time for us to gather and start changing our actions,and putting back what we took out of it.We need to think that every gesture has a consequence.A price to pay.
And that is why people of this earth are very lucky to have an ambassador such as the Prince of Wales.His battle to make nations understand these consequences is a hard task.
Of course we do not all have his kind of ressources.We also do not have a team of gardeners to weed and manage our garden.But think about it this way.We also do not have an agenda as charged as Prince Charles'.So every gardener,every farmer can do what this book preaches and prays for.Respect and listen to the land that is yours.As big or as small a parcel it may be.
We can do it.
I learned about the old ways of farming.Why they put the cows on a straw diet before calving.How to increase the chance of twin or triplet lambs.How to prepare the farming season,when to cut hay and why to do it this way......and the list goes on.
This book contains things the old folks teach us.Traditions handed down fron generation to generation.Things that you would not usually find in books.
"Highrove:Portrait of an Estate" is a Jewel.It should belong in every book collection,may it be as a coffee table book,but also as a reference for times to come.

Highgrove ...The Magic of Britain 11 Jun. 2001
By Diane - Published on
Format: Paperback
I first knew of Highgrove when I read that Charles had purchased it with an eye to his tremendous interest in organic farming. "Another beautiful country home for the Royals," I mused. But, after reading this book, I began to realize that Highgrove was more than a mere physical place but instead seems to be almost magical in it's beauty. The photos are breathtaking for anyone who loves natural beauty. Prince Charles's effort at organic farming is nothing short of inspirational for all who respect our beautiful planet. And the house itself...... is a dream to behold.......
