How the new micro eco-farmers succeed on mini-farms of from one to five acres, how they start with nothing, what traits they share, and their secrets they know. Get close-ups of those who are actually earning a full-time income for at least one adult.
A treasury of what you can grow, what farming methods you can use, and how the farmers reach their markets in surprisingly creative new ways. (US oriented).
The book outlines the emerging new sustainable production methods and distills the methods that have increased production on small ground from double to up to 40 times that of conventional growing. Hundreds of real-life examples are presented with ideas, resources and methods for all who aspire to create a self-sufficient lifestyle.
