City Homesteads

Interested in starting a garden or raising chickens but worry you don't have the space? Then check out Scott Meyer's "The City Homesteader Self-Sufficiency on Any Square Footage." 

In this book you'll learn to grow vegetables in a container, get tips on food preservation techniques, find out how to raise baby chicks and keep honey bees, and how to make your own cold frame. The book also has an appendix with tons of great resources including a growing guide and a list of helpful websites for further reference. If you live in a McMansion or a small apartment, you too can be self-sufficient and save a few dollars.
