There are so many ways to farm. You can farm vertically, you can buy a ¼ of an acre of land and turn that into a farm, plus you can keep bees nearly anywhere.
But the best way to farm, may be to farm in the home that you already own in the suburbs.
Amy Stross’s The Suburban Micro-Farm
That’s the premise of The Suburban Micro-Farm by Amy Stross.
You don’t have to up sticks and move out into the wilderness to grow your own food and reconnect with nature.
You can do it on your own front doorstep with no major hassles as long as you know what you’re doing.
Simlple, Step-By-Step Learning
Amy practices what she preaches. She has her own suburban farm called Tenth Acre Farm. When she’s not tending to the needs of her crops, she’s writing about permaculture, edible landscaping and gardening.
That means she can guide you through the whole process of setting up a suburban farm and she does so wonderfully. Everything you need to know to get started is in this book.
