If you are concerned about what is in the food that your family eats, this book is for you. If you have always wanted to take a chance at growing food for fun, nutrition and maybe a little extra spending money, this book is for you. Even if you only have a little space, even just a balcony or a patio, this book is for you. Whether you have always had a green thumb or have never managed to keep plastic plants happy, then this is the book for you.

For years people have kept their family’s fed by what they have raised on their own farms. After industrialization the family farm started shrinking and shrinking and people started getting their food from grocery stores. More and more people are returning to the land as concerns over additives and chemicals in commercially grown foods become more valid. This is the perfect book to get started no matter how small your growing area may be.

You will learn:

  • How to create a growing plan for your area- from patio containers, balcony boxes and even plans for very small, urban backyards.
  • How to grow an orchard in just a small area.
  • The truth about how much time and energy it takes to maintain a farm of any size- especially if you branch out to more than one type of plant.
  • How to get your garden growing the right way.
  • Tips on raising animals and which ones are easiest to care for and offer the biggest potential returns on your investment.
  • What to do when your garden starts producing: harvesting, storage and even tips on selling surplus if you would like.
  • How to set up a farmer’s co-op so that you can grow community bonds while you are growing vegetables and more.

You can grow enough of your family’s favorite vegetables to eliminate them from your grocery list and then some. Once you see how easy mini-farming can be you will want to grow more  and more! This book will get you started on the right foot!
