Find your route to a more sustainable lifestyle with Dick Strawbridge, of Escape to the Chateau, and his son James.
Wherever you live--be it in a small townhouse like James or on a rural small farm--this updated edition of Self-Sufficiency for the 21st Century offers the nuts and bolts of off-the-grid living to anyone who wants to embrace sustainability.
Self-Sufficiency for the 21st Century contains invaluable advice on making the most of your own resources no matter where you live. This comprehensive guide to modern sustainability covers everything from how to conserve energy in the home, keep bees, and grow crops in an urban garden to recipes for smoking your own meat and fish, creating nut milks, and preparing greener cleaning products. Each project is fully illustrated and easy to follow, allowing anyone to try their hand at something new.
With plenty of advice and anecdotes celebrating the importance and the satisfaction of a do-it-yourself lifestyle, Dick and James demonstrate that self-sufficiency doesn't have to mean packing up and moving to the country. By making a few small changes and learning the importance of sustainable living, we can all help the planet.
