Do you want to be more self-sufficient? Sally Morgan shows you how you can grow all the fruit and vegetables your family needs, raise animals for meat and eggs, keep fish and bees, and even produce firewood on a plot of land of just one acre or less alongside your work and family life. Whether you have a garden, smallholding, homestead or perhaps the corner of a field, Sally guides you through:
- How to lay out your plot including fencing and polytunnels or greenhouses
- Managing soil fertility
- Growing fruit and vegetables throughout the year
- Keeping livestock: poultry, pigs, sheep and goats
- Producing fish with aquaponics
- plus a new chapter on coping with climate change and how to manage your plot in drought and flood
Filled with practical advice, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to be more self-sufficient and live a more sustainable life.
