Diana Peacock, Paul Peacock Book and Novel

Diana Peacock, Paul Peacock - Authors


Paul and Diana Peacock practise self-sufficiency in Manchester. They believe strongly that the way we live is changing towards making more of our own food, and even some of the goods we use from day to day. Paul has written extensively for the gardening press, edits the Home Farmer Magazine with Diana, and has written fifteen books on gardening, self-sufficiency, beekeeping, wild food, and butchering. Diana has over thirty years experience of caring for a family of five, often on a tight budget, and is the author of two books on home baking and jam and preserves.
