Urban Farm Handbook and Challenge
I just finished scouring my new copy of Urban Farm Handbook by Annette Cottrell over at Sustainable Eats and Joshua McNicoles a seasoned gardener and journalist. They have a written a book that is extremely engaging and makes me want to organize myself to be the best I can be at raising my own foods and supporting agriculture where everyone wins. The information in their book is easy to read and in no way intimidating. After finishing each chapter, I say to myself "I get it!" and you will too. They have also included many seasonal recipes, producer profiles, and some awesome reference lists.
The best part is that Annette has set up the Urban Farm Handbook Challenge that starts now and runs for 12 months. Each month there is a different challenge activity that is suited to the season (yes! pun intended). Get the book or join the challenge or do both!
