TreehuggerTV: Urban Homestead

I wonder if I'll end up like this some day...

I've been following the Dervaes family with interest at intervals for a while now - a good object lesson of what can be done.

And on the theme of maximum utilisation of resources - you might be interested to borrow/buy a book I have just got hold of. Initial impressions are good: "Fresh food from small spaces - the square inch gardener's guide to year-round growing, fermenting and sprouting" by R.J. Ruppenthal. I got my copy from Amazon. He starts from the premise that even a small garden is luxury to a lot of people - a lot of us have only the tiniest amount of outdoor space, if any, and still want to grow some food. His comment "almost no space is too small or too dark to raise food" and he works from the basis that you have only got a city apartment or suburban townhouse. I think it's probably a book you would like for your library.

Thanks! I heard about it before, and I'll definately look it up.
