Anyone considering a shift to a geener way of living must get this inspirational and practical guide, written by Alan and Gill Bridgewater.

With easy-to-read layouts and simple text, it runs the full ecological gamut, from geothermal heating to crop rotation to soap making. The Bridgewaters, well-regarded garden writers, help readers answer questions such as how much land they really require, whether or not to depend entirely on natural forms of energy, and which farm animals will best meet their needs. There’s practical information on building an insulated flue-pipe chimney, identifying edible wild plants, and composting with worms. In addition to recipes for jams, rhubarb wine, and other delicious foods, three A-Z sections offer planting and harvesting instructions for vegetables and salad crops, fruits, and herbs.

Alan and Gill Bridgewater began their adventure in self-sufficient living in the 1960s and have been gaining wisdom and experience in the field ever since. They are now considered international experts on the subject.
