Product Description

About the Author

Dick Strawbridge, a retired lieutenant colonel and former army engineer, has always been fascinated by how things work. His desire to lead a greener life led him to put his practical and leadership skills to use in converting Newhouse Farm in Cornwall, UK, into an ecologically friendly, but completely modern, place to live. The family's journey to a sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle was documented in the BBC series It's Not Easy Being Green.

James Strawbridge, Dick's son, has inherited his father's enthusiasm for DIY and ecological issues. Co-presenting It's Not Easy Being Green allowed him the opportunity to fully pursue both interests. James continues to work with his father on the green living courses, as well as gardening and engineering projects. He is a regular contributor to magazine and newspaper discussions on green issues.

Format: Hardcover
This book is awesome, it has everything from how to take care of your peas, to how to build a house. If you want to live a little greener, there are lots of ideas, from simple to huge projects. I could put it this way, if I was stuck on a deserted island, this would be the book I would want to have.

I borrowed this from the library and immediately bought my own copy. It has tons and tons of practical projects in self sufficiency, and while not all have extremely detailed instructions, the instructions generally give you a pretty good idea of whether a job is too complicated for you to tackle just yet, or if it's something you'd want to explore more. Tons of pictures, diagrams and layouts, as well as recipes and tips make this a super fun book for me as i begin my first year on the farm, milking, gardening, making cheese and caring for bottle baby animals...

a clear concise, enjoyable read with lots of ideas and how-to's. I had actually read most of this book while babysitting and was so impressed that I had to order one for myself. Even though the authors farm in England they mention a lot of ideas and products available in North America.

I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in being self sufficient, homesteading, or just having a wee garden to call their own.
