Have you ever wondered whether you could be completely self-sufficient in growing your own fruit and vegetables? Huw Richards certainly did.
In fact, Huw set himself a challenge, he wanted to achieve this in a single year.
That’s the origin story of Grow Food For Free: The Sustainable, Zero-Cost, Low-Effort Way To A Bountiful Harvest.
This Is Not An Expensive Effort
It’s important to note that Huw is not going to start teaching you how to grow your own food by encouraging you to spend thousands of dollars on equipment.
In fact, he’s going to show you how to repurpose things you already have laying around or which you ought to be able to pick up easily and cheaply if you don’t.
He won’t even get you to spend a fortune on plants because he’ll teach you how to plant the things you already eat.
He’ll even show you the art of bartering or borrowing for the equipment you need to grow the plants you want to harvest.
In short, everything in Grow Food for Free is really about the “free” component. That’s how you make a sustainable garden.
We also recommend checking out Huw’s YouTube channel – it’s full of practical advice that supports the thrust of his book and it’s completely free to access too!
