For millions of years, this planet did well without agricultural chemicals. For roughly a single century (unfortunately, this one) we have done a lot of damage interfering with the natural processes. Nonetheless, in 1982, when Keeping Them Alive was published, the idea on tending to house plants without using chemicals was a novel idea.

The last 100 copies of this pioneering classic (now in its second printing) are being offered directly by the author and publisher. Years ahead of its time, Keeping Them Alive introduced thousands of readers around the globe to caring for houseplants without the use of chemicals. This may be your last opportunity to own a Canadian classic. Keeping Them Alive will not be reprinted!
