A Book For The City Farmer

A brilliant and acclaimed book from journalist and self confessed rurbanite Alex Mitchell. Full of great information on container gardening, urban growing, wild food, urban wild flowers, urban birds, keeping hens, quail, ducks and bees and much more, The Rurbanite is the perfect book for the city  gardener. If you would love to sample the 'good life' in an urban setting then this is the book for you. A Rurbanite is "someone with a passion for the countryside but a reluctance to leave the city any time soon".  This book makes an ideal gift for Christmas, birthdays or other occasions.

 

Do you eye that derelict patch of ground on your way to work and dream of turning it into a vegetable garden?

Do you love living in the city but fantasise about keeping hens?

Do you look at the weeds by the bus stop and wonder if they'd make a nice salad?

 

Then you're a rurbanite. You have a passion for the countryside but no intention of actually leaving the city. Don't worry you're not alone. You're part of a growing band of people who want the best of both worlds.
