What Is the Best Way Organically to Enrich Sandy Soil?

Zone tropical | sandysoil by the sea added on November 13, 2012 | Answered

We have an organic vegetable garden on a Caribbean island. The first year we grew a bumper crop of a variety of vegetables. However, since then, we've had very poor yield. Our soil is very sandy. What is the best way to enrich the soil so it will once again give us fresh organically grown veggies? Thank you!
