21st-century Smallholder by Paul Waddington

Book Description

Achieving genuine self-sufficiency of the kind described in John Seymour's classic guide is sadly beyond the vast reach of the urban majority today. Few have the space, and for those few there are comprehensive guidebooks. But where do the rest of us look for the answers to questions like how much effort does it really take to grow your own food? Is beekeeping difficult? Is solar power really worth the bother?From a small terraced house in the middle of a big city, Paul Waddington has made it his business to find out, and while trying it himself, has created a practical and absorbing guidebook along the way. It includes easy-to-read lists, tables, personal anecdote, and stunning illustrations, and more importantly demystifies the subject with practical tips that get to the heart of the matter to show you how you can enjoy the fulfilling aspects of the smallholding life without the hassle and expense of 'going all the way'. If you want to go back to the land without leaving home, this is the perfect guide.

Shades of Green by Paul Waddington Shades of Green, Paperback (April 2010)

Few of us have what it takes to go 'all the way' on the green scale. This title sets out your choices on a scale from 'completely green' to 'not even a little bit green'. It gives what you need to know so you can choose what suits you best.

Seasonal Food by Paul Waddington Seasonal Food, Paperback (March 2009)

Organized into 12 chapters, one for each month of the year, this book starts with a brief story about the month itself (what's happening in the farming calendar, food-related customs and traditions), followed by narrative sections covering what's in prime season - fruit and veg, meat, fish and other seasonally-influenced produce such as cheeses.
