Practical Self Sufficiency is a wonderfully useful and accessible book that contains something for absolutely everyone!

This fully updated guide offers clear step-by-step information in classic DK style and offers a greater focus on the issues surrounding sustainable living for those living in urbanised parts of Australia (approximately half the population) and 'living small'. With practical advice on reducing your carbon footprint, growing and making your own, community gardening, design options for energy saving and retrofitting, and doing more with less.

With authoritative advice, step-by-step guidance, and fascinating illustrations, Practical Self Sufficiency will help you make simple changes that can have a major impact on your life and reduce your impact on the planet.
