This inspirational yet practical introduction to a greener way of living emphasizes positive aspects of self-sufficiency, such as cutting living costs and eating well.
For anyone seeking the ecofriendly good life and a shift to a greener way of living, The Self-Sufficiency Handbook is essential reading. The authors’ expertise runs the ecological gamut from geothermal heating to crop rotation to soap-making as they address important topics such as how much land is really needed to be self-sufficient, whether or not you should depend entirely on natural forms of energy, and which farm animals will best meet your needs. Readers will find practical information on building an insulated flue pipe chimney, identifying edible wild plants, and composting with worms as well as recipes for jams, rhubarb wine, cheeses, and more. Packed with full-color photographs, helpful illustrations, and diagrams, The Self-Sufficiency Handbook will appeal to urban dwellers who want to adopt certain aspects of a greener lifestyle, serious adherents of back-to-basics living, and everyone in between.
