It provides tips to utilize the space we DO have to work with. Backyard Farming on an Acre (more or less), even helps those with much less..such as apartment dwellers.
It provides steps for beginners, as well as tips for more experienced people. The book is organized in five distinct sections, so you can step into each area at whatever level you are. (And skip areas that are not of interest or not a good fit for your situation - our neighbors nor homeowners association would appreciate us keeping goats or roosters for example - yet that is a small part of a BIG, wide-ranging book. There is something here for everyone.
The book has a FANTASTIC index so you can jump into more healthy living, better cost savings and move (be it baby step or giant leap) toward a more self-sufficient lifestyle.
This is the perfect gift book for those wanting to make positive changes...and perfect for your own New Year's Resolutions toward the same in any area from growing more of your own food to raising animals, bees (not me, but my brother does this) or candle making or lost arts.
