Product Description

Fresh Food from Small Spaces - The Square Inch Gardener's Guide to Year-Round Growing, Fermenting, and Sprouting

"This book is a practical guide to growing food for city residents with small spaces.  It provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to produce food from your own fresh vegetables and fruits, mushrooms, sprouts, fermented foods, and small livestock.  Even if you have no yard and very little free space, you can produce a variety of fresh food.  Using the informaiton in this book, I believe that anyone living in a typical city apartment, condominium, townhouse, or single-family home could apply just two or three of the strategies mentioned in this book and grow up to 10 to 20 percent of their own fresh food.  This may sound impossible, but it's very achievable by using a combination of traditional methods and innovative, space-saving techniques....In short, this book is about using every square inch of your available space to create a fresher and more sustainable lifestyle." - RJ Ruppenthal
