Urban Farming Book List

Urban Farming Book List

Jun 09

If you have a small yard or no yard at all, or if you have very little experience with gardening, you may find the prospect of growing your own food daunting. Because we live in a city and know that cities are most in need of fresh food, here’s a list of books related to urban farming and self-sufficiency that we have found. Many we have read or browsed, though some we have not. Some will describe the basics of self-sufficiency in detail while others cover only general topics and still others are just anecdotal. We will be updating this list whenever we find new relevant books.
