Lighten Your Footprint and Boost Your Sustainable Knowledge!
Not just for mountain men and off-the-grid-only types, self-sufficiency is for anyone living anywhere who’s looking to reduce their environmental impact and simplify their life. And this book is the ideal first step on that path. Packed with helpful tips and how-tos, it guides you through the practical steps on topics like cutting back on plastic or food waste, growing vegetables, preserving meat and fish, preparing jams and chutneys, baking sourdough bread, making your own plant-based milks, or keeping a chicken or two. Written by father and son team Dick and James Strawbridge, the book covers lessons they have learned while living a sustainable life everywhere from smallholding in the English countryside, to an urban terraced house and even a chateau. Whether you want to completely revamp your lifestyle or just make everyday changes that will make an impact, Self-Sufficiency for the 21st Century is the perfect place to start.
