The best book about realistic self sufficiency!

Recommended Posts

When we went to the Eden Project last month, Ian bought a book, for no other reason than that he liked the title.


21st Century Smallholder, by Paul Waddington.

Published by Eden Project Books, ISBN 190391969X

Its really cool, looks at everything, from gardening, to bees, chickens (yay!!), piggies, to streamlining water usage, how to become more eco-friendly and trying to be 'waste-neutral'.


I have just finished reading it cover to cover and its full of handy hints and tips, from growing plants in containers on the windowsill to having a big garden to 'play' with.


Recommended reading.
