Summary

Many of us yearn to live more simply, in touch with nature and the seasons, and taking responsibility for what we consume and our impact on the world. This book shows how we can choose to live a greener life - whether it's growing our own in the suburbs, keeping bees in the city, or living in the country. Father and son, Dick and James Strawbridge, share everything they have tried and tested on their smallholding in this inspiring and practical book. There's something for everyone. Traditional crafts, cheese, and bread making sit alongside techniques for reducing waste and harnessing wind and solar energy to power your home. With authoritative advice, step-by-step guidance, and fascinating illustrations, Practical Self Sufficiency will help you make simple changes that can have a major impact on your life and reduce your impact on the planet.
