If you're looking for a book with big, beautiful full-color photographs, this isn't the book for you. If you're looking for a wealth of information with lots of tips and how-tos to give you the garden you've always dreamed of, then you've come to the right place. There is so MUCH in this book: planting schedules, the best way to seed a variety of plants, how to choose and care for (and kill) the animals, and so much more.
This is a must have for any gardener or any family wanting to be self-sustaining. I cannot say enough great things about it!
So, could you buy a farm, plant a garden, raise a bunch of animals and become a successful urban farming businessperson just with this book? Well, no- but that would be too much to ask. The Essential Urban Farmer does, however, lay a very strong foundation for doing each of those things. It discusses not only ideas and possibilities, but also the nitty gritty lowdown on what different projects and ventures entail and precise how-to and how-not-to advice and directions. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of rolling up their sleeves and working to make their little patch of urban land into a beautiful, productive farm- on whatever scale they are able.
