Practical Self-sufficiency The complete guide to sustainable living today

by Dick and James Strawbridge

Practical Self-sufficiency The complete guide to sustainable living today Synopsis

Find your route to a more sustainable lifestyle with Dick Strawbridge, of Channel 4's Escape to the Chateau, and his son James. No matter who we are or where we live, we can all take steps to reduce our carbon footprint. For some, that might mean upping sticks and living off the land. For the rest of us, the reality might involve smaller, but no less important, lifestyle changes: cutting back on plastic or food waste, foraging wild produce, growing a few vegetables, making your own plant-based milks, or keeping a chicken or two. Dick and James Strawbridge know what it's like to make these changes. Between them, they've lived on a smallholding, in a terraced house, and even a chateau. In this updated edition of Practical Self-sufficiency they share everything they've learned, and give you the tools you need for a more rewarding and environmentally conscious life.
