About Grow Food For Free

Huw Richards is a man on a mission. He wants everyone to grow their own fruit and vegetables, and he wants to prove that you don't need much money (or even your own garden) to do so.

Grow Food for Free shows you how to produce no-cost, low-maintenance fruit and vegetables. Learn about the space you need and how to prepare it, how to make your own compost, how to get your first set of seeds, and then strategies to multiply the seeds you have.

Can't afford a raised bed? Try repurposing an old wooden pallet. Don't have money to buy lots of different seeds? Look in your kitchen for food that you can plant. Don't have a garden? See if there is anyone in your local community that will let you grow vegetables in their garden. Whatever you're worried about, there is a low-cost way to overcome it.

Once you've found a good site, Huw recommends his favorite low-maintenance, high-yield crops, covering first annuals, then perennials (the holy grail of free food growing, as, if well maintained, perennial crops will provide new harvests year after year). Key plant maintenance instructions are provided throughout the book, as well as how to fend off common pests and diseases.

Discover how you can barter, borrow, repurpose, and propagate your way to a bountiful harvest of fruit and vegetables, joining the food-growing revolution without burdening your bank balance!
