Summary
Due to a burgeoning sustainable-living movement, you don't have to own acreage to fulfill your dream of raising your own food. This book walks every city and suburban dweller down the path of self-sustainability. It introduces the concepts of gardening and farming from high-rise apartment, participating in a community garden, vertical farming, and converting terraces and other small city spaces into fruitful, vegetable real estate. This volume answers every up-and-coming urban farmer's questions about how, what, where, and why. It is a new green book for the dedicated citizen seeking to reduce his or her carbon footprint and grocery bill.
