You can grow all the fruit and vegetables your family needs, raise animals for meat and eggs, keep fish and bees, and even produce firewood on a plot of land of just one acre or less alongside your work and family life.

Whether you have a garden, a paddock or perhaps the corner of a field, Sally Morgan guides you through:

  • How to lay out your plot including fencing and polytunnels or greenhouses
  • Managing soil fertility
  • Growing fruit and vegetables throughout the year
  • Keeping livestock: poultry, pigs, sheep and goats
  • Producing fish with aquaponics

Filled with practical advice, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to be more self-sufficient and live a more sustainable life.
