This beautifully illustrated volume brings together a whole host of tips and ideas to help to change your lifestyle without becoming overwhelming. You can dip into it at leisure and easily find projects to try out as the book is helpfully divided into sections for people who have no garden, a very small garden area, or a large garden or access to an allotment.
Excellent book – I definitely recommend it!

I only got this today and I’ve browsed through it cover to cover… it’s very inspiring and really makes you think about the environment. It’s full of little projects whether you have a big garden to no garden at all! My first projects are to get a wormery and a water butt, followed by creating a small veg garden.
It even shows you how to keep chickens, goats, pigs and cows!!
