The Urban Homestead (Expanded & Revised Edition): Your Guide to Self-Sufficient Living in the Heart of the City
Jul 07, 2010
This book had some useful information and a few really intriguing, fresh ideas. In general the book only touches the surface of important information on homesteading, using its thick pages for info on 'dumpster diving' rather than useful information like canning and preserving summer bounty. The gardening section would be more useful if I had more than a balcony for my vegetable garden but I live in an URBAN environ and expected more information on gardening in small urban spaces. The information about home-made cleaning products was handy but it was nothing that I hadn't already found in random Google searches. Save your money for a real homesteading book that you can alter to fit your urban needs. This gal is disappointed.
