100s of Ways to Live More Sustainably, Wherever You Are

A fully revised and updated edition of the self-sufficiency classic. Packed with practical information and expert advice on everything from gardening to cooking, and from health and beauty to raising livestock, this is the indispensable guide to living more sustainably, whether you live in a city apartment block or on a rural smallholding.

“A treasure-trove of brilliant ideas and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions”
- Adam Henson, BBC One’s Countryfile

In our current era of pandemic and environmental crisis, self-sufficiency is a means of taking control of our lives and safeguarding for the future - and this new, fully updated edition of the sustainability classic will help every householder do just that. You’ll find all the practical information and expert guidance you need on every aspect of self-sufficiency, from gardening and baking through health, beauty and cleaning to foraging and livestock, whatever your needs, circumstances and resources. This means that the gardening chapter, for example, is appropriate both for people with an urban back yard or a more substantial plot of land.

Written in a down-to-earth, engaging and often amusing style, and charmingly illustrated with line drawings, the book will appeal to anyone who wants to be more creative, resourceful and independent, who wants to rediscover their inner hunter-gatherer, to single people as much as to large families, and to parents looking to equip their children with basic life skills.

About the Author

Aged just 32, Simon Dawson took a risk, sold his London flat and moved with his wife, Great Dane and horse to a cottage on Exmoor. Scraping every penny together they bought 20 acres of scruffy but beautiful Exmoor, and built from scratch a smallholding where they still live, self-sufficient and happy. Simon is a radio presenter on The Voice of North Devon and the author of Pigs in Clover, among other books.
