More About This Title Sustainable Food
In this companion book to the bestselling Sustainable House, attention is turned to reducing the carbon emissions associated with growing, processing, transporting, selling, and disposing of food. Using the author's personal experiences as its anchor, this handbook contains practical advice on establishing community and backyard vegetable gardens, keeping chooks (chickens) and bees, and reducing water usage, along with insights into dealing with councils, sidelining supermarkets, and what people eat and why. A template is provided for those wishing to learn sustainability measures and put them into practice.
