The guide for anyone who dreams of living the country life in the city by growing their own healthy, sustainable fruit and veg - and more!

Producing our own fruit, vegetables, herbs, eggs and honey is perfectly possible in a suburban backyard. This practical guide will help urban dwellers develop a more sustainable existence.

With a deep knowledge of permaculture and organic gardening, horticultural expert Justin Calverley shows you how to establish a diverse urban farm, whether in your own backyard, a plot shared with your neighbours or even on a kerbside verge. Justin advocates observing and following nature's cycles and patterns as the best way to a sustainable and productive garden.

As well as growing fruit and veg, Justin explains how to take up bee-keeping, mushroom growing, chook care, propagation and preserving your patch's bounty.

So be inspired and get cracking on your own little garden of Eden!
